Breaking: Israeli strike in Syria targeted head of Hezbullah's Syria operations
A short while ago, I reported that Israeli helicopters had attacked al-Nusra forces on the Golan Heights
. It now appears that there was a target there: The head of Hezbullah's operations in Syria.
By the way, the son of Hezbullah terrorist Imad Mughniyah
- who was allegedly killed by Israel himself - was also killed in Sunday's strike in the Golan Heights.
Two sources close to Hezbollah said that the son of former Hezbollah military leader Imad Mughniyeh was killed in the strike.
Mughniyeh was killed in 2008 in a car-bombing widely attributed to Israel in the foreign media.
cited an Israeli security sources as saying the strike had targeted
purported terrorists who were planning an attack on the Jewish state.
The IDF said in response that it does not comment on foreign reports and Syrian state media did not mention the attack.
