Iranian official says Israel is spreading lies about Nasrallah's health

Israel acknowledged on Sunday that it carried out a weekend air strike on what it called an Iranian arms cache in Syria, and that it also completed a hunt for cross-border tunnels dug by Tehran-allied Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas.

"The Israel Defense Forces has attacked hundreds of Iranian and Hezbollah targets". That possibility appeared reinforced by figures he gave on Sunday that went beyond more measured information previously provided by other officials.

Israel has pledged to prevent Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where it is backing President Bashar al-Assad's regime alongside Russian Federation and Hezbollah.

Since then Israel has been very careful with its operation over Syria.

"Just in the last 36 hours the air force attacked Iranian warehouses with Iranian weapons at the worldwide airport in Damascus".

"The results of the aggression so far were limited to a strike on one of the warehouses at Damascus airport", the SANA news agency cited a military source as saying.

The powerful Shiite militant Hezbollah, which acts independently in Lebanon, has yet to comment on the Israeli discoveries.

Hezbollah and Israel last fought a war in 2006. Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV said the attack was "broader than usual", and targeted areas stretching from the eastern Damascus suburb of Dmeir to Kiswa, south of the capital, and all the way to the western village of Dimas near the Lebanese border.

In a New York Times interview published Friday, Lt Gen Eisenkot - the man who is credited with marshalling Israel's Syria campaign against Hezbollah and Iran - revealed the government approved his shift in strategy in January 2017 to step up airstrikes in Syria.

The IDF also said that the "operation stripped from Hezbollah the unique offensive ability that it had built for years as part of an attack plan into Israeli territory that it wanted to conduct to create emergency situations".

"Everyone understands how that war might have looked, with Hezbollah regiments in the (Israeli region of the) Galilee and an Iranian army opposite the Golan", he told reporters.
