Report: Israeli Warplanes Strike Palestinian Base in Lebanon

Report: Israeli Warplanes Strike Palestinian Base in Lebanon

Monday, 26 August 2019 02:37 AM

BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon's state-run National News Agency says Israeli warplanes have attacked a Palestinian base in the country's east, near the border with Syria.

The report says there were three strikes early on Monday, minutes apart, that struck a base for a Syrian-backed group known as the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine — General Command.

There was no immediate comment from Israel on the strike, which the agency said hit near the Lebanese village of Qusaya in the eastern Bekaa Valley.

The strike comes amid heightened regional tensions and a day after one alleged Israeli drone crashed in a Hezbollah stronghold in southern Beirut while another exploded and crashed nearby.

Airstrikes by Israel against Palestinian factions in Lebanon, such as this one, have been rare in the past years.
