The jet did not penetrate Syrian airspace but did allegedly breach Lebanese airspace in order to come within striking range of its designated target.
Although mere speculation for now, the Israeli airstrike likely intended to assassinate senior Hezbollah figure due to Al-Saboorah's proximity to the Damascus Beirut Highway, a main road often used by the Lebanese resistance movement, Al-Masdar Reported.
Other report suggests that the missiles struck a Hezbollah workshop for vehicles. No casualties reported as no technicians working at mid-night.
On Monday, the Israeli Air Force also conducted an airstrike in the Syrian Golan Heights, targeting the ISIS-affiliated Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade.
