An air strike on Hezbollah positions close to the Golan heights in Syria has killed several fighters. Lebanese military sources say one of the dead is Jihad Mughniyeh.
He is the son of a former Hezbollah top commander. Israel refused to comment on Sunday’s strike. Media sources claim the men who died had been plotting to kill or capture towns in northern Israel.
The Golan heights were seized by Israel from Syria in the closing stages of the 1967 Middle East War. Jihad Mughniyeh’s father died in a bombing in Damascus in 2008.
