Israel has intensified its military strikes in northern Syria’s Aleppo province with airstrikes early Friday while simultaneously targeting a senior Hezbollah commander in Lebanon. This marked a significant escalation in its operations against Iran’s proxies, alongside its ongoing conflict in Gaza.

A key figure in Hezbollah’s military hierarchy, Ali Abed Akhsan Naim, was confirmed killed by an Israeli airstrike in the Bazouriye area of Lebanon. The Israeli military claimed he was responsible for conducting and planning attacks against Israeli civilians. Israel also targeted international airports in Damascus and Aleppo, disrupting weapon flows to Iran’s allies.
