Airstrike reportedly takes place near Syria-Lebanon border; casualties reported

(SOURCE)  Israeli fighter jets struck near the city of Brital, inflicting casualties, Lebanese media outlets reported Tuesday, citing security sources.

According to Lebanese news site el-Nashra, there were multiple Lebanese injured in two airstrikes near the towns of Brital and Arsal, near the Syrian border.

There was no immediate confirmation of the report. The IDF said it wouldn’t comment on foreign news reports.

Hezbollah’s al-Manar news denied the accuracy of reports of Israeli airstrikes targeting Hezbollah near the border.

Lebanese state media reported just before the reported strike that Israeli jets were flying at low altitudes over the mountains before the strike.

Brital is located in eastern Lebanon, near the border with Syria. The region is a Hezbollah stronghold and has been the base of the Shiite militia’s operations against Syrian rebel groups.

Israel has been blamed for attacks in Syria in the past, and one attack near the Lebanon-Syria border last year.
