Local Lebanon news agencies have reported that Lebanese Officials have lodged a protest at the UN over Israel had violated Lebanese sovereignty by using Lebanese airspace to target Syrian territory.
The Lebanese government claims that Israel violated its airspace while launching attacks on military sites in Al-Qusayr in Syria’s Homs governorate believed to belong to Hezbollah.
It says that a missile from an Israeli plane landed in an area of forest near the town of Lehfed, 56 kilometres north of Beirut in the Byblos region. The Lebanese people of Lehfed awoke to the sound of a huge explosion that shook buildings and shattered windows.
Lebanon news – local town blasted by Israel missile attack
A missile had landed within hundreds of meters from populated areas, blasting a hole in the ground about 20 meters deep, according to the local people from the town. The Initial information suggested that the missile weighed about 250 kg and so far no fatalities have been reported.
According to Lebanese news, the local town resident was furious that Israel would drop a bomb with such recklessness amid a civilian population and suggested if they have such poor targeting systems they must be killing hundreds of innocent civilians in Syria.
Residents of the town of Majdal and neighbouring villages in the Koura district also heard the explosion and said they saw flashes of light in the area, which they believed to be the result of Syrian air defences intercepting the Israeli attack. People in Akkar, a northern region that borders Syria, particularly those in Wadi Khaled and Akroum, said they heard missiles being fired at Shayrat Airbase in Homs.
