Hezbollah positions in Syria struck by 'unidentified' warplanes

Unidentified fighter jets on Tuesday attacked at least three positions of the Lebanese Hezbollah on Syrian territory around the city of Al-Zabadani, local media reported.

"Several" militants were injured in the strikes, according to reports and witnesses on the ground.

Details on the incident were scarce at time of reporting.

The Lebanese Shiite movement has intervened militarily on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad, dispatching between 5,000 to 8,000 fighters to bolster the beleaguered Syrian army.

The group receives military and financial support from Iran, Israel's principal regional foe.

Last week Syrian state TV said that the Israeli Air Force planes bombed a Syrian army outpost on the outskirts of Damascus and a Hezbollah weapons convoy on the highway linking Damascus to Beirut.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied the report.
