Israeli jets allegedly struck targets near the Syrian capital last night, the Jerusalem Post reported citing Lebanese media sources.
Ibrahim Al-Amin, head of the Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, wrote recently that Hezbollah's military, security and intelligence capabilities have grown in the recent years.
The details of the weaponry were not included in the reports that were monitored.
Lebanese media is reporting that, all of a sudden, Hezbollah has been obtaining stockpiles of "advanced, state-of-the art weapons of various kinds", including shipments from Iran, says a report in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
Israel's airforce raided an arms convoy outside Damascus, according to a Wednesday morning report by Lebanese television channel Al-Jadeed. Loud explosions were said to be heard in the vicinity.
Hezbollah has reportedly lost over a thousand men fighting alongside the government forces of President Bashar Assad. It was not clear if the targeted sites "belong to the Syrian army or its allied Lebanese Hezbollah movement", he added.
No casualties have been reported.
"Israel should think a million times before it goes to war with Lebanon".
Aoun's statement came a few days after Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah gave a speech during which he threated that in the next confrontation with Israel, his organization will attack the ammonia tank in Haifa and even the Dimona nuclear reactor. Nasrallah pointed to Hezbollah's increased military capabilities as the main deterrent preventing Israeli aggressions, seemingly confident that the Israel would not be able to achieve any of its strategic goals if it were to wage war on Lebanon.
