Israel has carried out 10 aerial attacks against terrorist operatives in Syria (illustrative).

Monday, 26 February 2024 | Hezbollah reported Sunday two fatalities from its ranks in an airstrike on the Lebanon–Syria border attributed to Israel. Shortly before, sources in Damascus attributed to Israel another attack in the Homs region near the border between Syria and its neighbor, where the heart of the Shiite terrorist organization is located.

Since the outbreak of the war, Hezbollah’s activity in the territory under the control of Bashar al-Assad’s regime has repeatedly been exposed, but Iranian elements and pro-Iranian militias loyal to the “Axis of Resistance” also operate in the area and enjoy the support of the Tehran regime.

Hassan Nasrallah’s organization did not link in its official statements between the deaths of its two operatives and the attack in the area straddling the Syria–Lebanon border. However, the Syrian Observatory For Human Rights, a London-based opposition war monitor, linked all the details that were published. A photo documenting a truck engulfed in flames after the airstrike attributed to Israel was circulated on social media.

Hezbollah operatives are scattered along the southern border of Lebanon as well as in areas bordering Syria. They reside in villages near the border fence and operate when necessary. The presence of Hezbollah in the Al-Biqa’a district in Lebanon, provides convenient access to the neighboring country for activities such as arms smuggling and training.

Numerous pro-Iranian militias operate in Syrian territory, some of which have been involved in attacks on US military bases in recent months. According to recent reports on Sky News in Arabic, Hezbollah uses its operations in Syria through military units of the local army and relies on civilian houses in the Sayyidah Zaynab area to establish temporary headquarters that vary from time to time.

According to data from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Israel has carried out 16 attacks in Syria since the beginning of the year, with 10 being aerial and six ground-based. These attacks reportedly damaged or destroyed 34 targets, including key weapon depots and ammunition caches.

Israel Defense Forces [IDF] continues to monitor activities near the Israeli border. In recent weeks, two stone structures were built in Israeli territory in the rugged terrain near the Syrian border. These structures were used for covert observation and surveillance purposes toward Israel.

On Friday morning, forces from the 474th Brigade demolished the structures near Tel Faher in the southern Golan Heights, mere yards from the border fence. This action addressed a clear border breach, following close surveillance of infiltrators who crossed the international demarcation line, knowingly entering the country’s territory.

“We identified in recent weeks that they were under construction, monitored the building process, gathered all the information and decided not to allow the continuation of this activity once their construction was completed,” recounted Major (res.) Nadav, a commander in the 474th Brigade, to Ynet.

“On Friday morning, we breached the fence and detonated both structures with explosives, then left the area. At dawn, we demolished both structures. These weren’t buildings meant for occupancy, but rather structures that could serve the other side for residence and military purposes.”

Since the outbreak of the war, the IDF has identified attempts to establish and create a terror front along the Syrian border by organizations dispatched to the Syrian sector, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, and beyond. Their presence is closely monitored, and military forces study and investigate their activities.
