The Israeli Air Force reportedly attacked a Syrian army outpost and a Hezbollah arms convoy not far from the highway connecting Damascus and Beirut early Wednesday, according to Arab media.

Both attacks were reportedly carried out by aircraft flying over Lebanese airspace.

According to reports that originated on social media accounts affiliated with the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, at 1:15am four explosions were heard in Damascus.

Officials quoted by the London-based newspaper Rai al-Youm said the explosions were caused by four missiles fired in two different targets.

The first target, the officials said, was an arms depot that belongs to the 38th Brigade of the 4th Division in the Syrian army. While damage was caused to the arms depot, no one was reported hurt.

The second target was several vehicles that were believed to be part of a Hezbollah arms convoy travelling near the highway connecting the Syrian and Lebanese capitals. The officials stressed that the attack did not target any political or military leader.

So far, the attack has not been reported by Hezbollah affiliated media, nor did it receive official comment from the Syrian regime.
