  • Hezbollah has promised in the past to retaliate for any fighter that Israel kills in Syria

Israel did not take responsibility for the airstrikes, but Hezbollah was quick to accuse it of killing Ali Kamel Mohsen Jawad.

Evidently, Israel is taking Hezbollah's threats seriously. The airstrike, which also killed four other foreign fighters, was widely attributed to Israel, AP reports. Hezbollah and Israel fought a 34-day war in 2006 that ended in a draw.

Israel did not comment on this week's strike and generally refrains from discussing its activities in neighboring Syria.

Israel chose to boost its forces on the confrontation line with Hezbollah after an attack earlier this week near Damascus International Airport killed killed five combatants including a fighter from the Iran-backed terror group that is fighting on behalf of Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad.

Israeli defence officials have said in recent months that Israel would step up its campaign against Iran in Syria.
