Syria says air defences shoot down Israeli missiles

"Just in the last 36 hours the air force attacked Iranian warehouses containing Iranian weapons in the Damascus worldwide airport", Netanyahu said on Sunday at the start of a cabinet meeting, according to his office.

Benjamin Netanyahu's comments on Sunday at his weekly Cabinet meeting mark a rare public acknowledgement of Israeli activity in Syria.

The Israel Defense Forces attacked targets of Iran and [Lebanese Shi'a movement] Hezbollah.

The latest discovery, coupled with a weekend strike against suspected Iranian and Hezbollah sites near the Damascus International Airport that is attributed to Israel, was perceived in Israeli media as Eisenkot's "parting shot" as he left office.

Hezbollah's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, has been hospitalised after suffering a heart attack, the newspaper Israel Hayom reported, citing Lebanese journalist Jerry Mahar.

After previously reporting the discovery of five tunnels, the Israeli military said another had been found on Saturday, 55 metres (yards) deep and reaching "a few tens of metres" into Israel from a point 800 meters within Lebanon.

Israel has uncovered all cross-border attack tunnels dug by Hezbollah from Lebanon and now plans to bring its operation to find and destroy them to an end, a military spokesman said Sunday. Conricus says the United Nations peacekeeping mission, known as UNIFIL, had been updated on the latest development.

A far more visible part of his legacy has been the recent Lebanese border operation, which the military said thwarted Hezbollah's prime strategic investment for its next potential war.

Israel has called on the global community to impose tough sanctions on Hezbollah and act against the state within a state operation in Lebanon. In 2018 alone, Israel dropped around 2,000 bombs on alleged Iran-linked targets, Gadi Eisenkot told the New York Times in his final interview as chief of staff of the IDF before he retires next week. But with that civil war winding down, Israeli security officials fear Hezbollah is refocusing its attention on Israel.
