At least six people were killed Monday in a strike in Syria near the Lebanese border, Al Arabiya reported.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, "Israeli strikes targeted two positions of pro-Iran groups in the Homs region," and a "Hezbollah site in the Qusayr area" near the border. It was at this site that "six Iran-backed fighters were killed," the Observatory claimed.

According to Al Mayadeen, the strike in Al-Qusayr aimed for a weapons shipment destined for the Hezbollah terror group.
