Israel carried out an air strike at 6:30 am near the town of Al-Hamidiyah, about 3 km from the Lebanese border. According to the ministry, the air strike hit poultry farms. According to media reports, the strike was conducted from the Mediterranean Sea, west of Lebanon’s northern city of Tripoli.

Since the civil war broke out in Syria in 2011, Israel has carried out multiple air strikes against Syria. Millions of Syrians also face the everyday threats of violence, hunger, and disease due to war.

The airstrikes by the Israeli forces often target Syrian government troops and allied Iran-backed forces and fighters from the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah. The Iran-backed group has a well-armed militia.
