Israeli air strikes hit Palestinian military position in Lebanon a day after Beirut drone crash
Israeli air strikes hit a military position belonging to a Palestinian group in Lebanon, near the Syrian border, early on Monday, Lebanon’s An-Nahar news said.
The position belonged to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, the newspaper said.
The strikes came a day after two drones, which the Lebanese army and the Iran-backed Hezbollah group said were Israeli, crashed in the Hezbollah-dominated southern suburbs of Beirut, with one exploding.
“Three Israeli air strikes target the Lebanese-Syria border east of Zahle,” An-Nahar said.
An official from the Palestinian position in the Lebanese town of Qusaya said three air strikes hit it, causing only material damage. An-Nahar said anti-aircraft fire was launched from the position.
“MK planes (drones) targeted one of our sites with three small rockets. There were no casualties, only material damage,” Abu Muhammad told An-Nahar.
An Israeli military spokeswoman told Reuters: “We do not comment on foreign reports.”
The Lebanese army was not immediately available for comment.
