Since the beginning of the bloody civil war in 2011, Israel is reported to have attacked Syrian military bases on a number of occasions, including raids reportedly targeting Iranian rockets bound for Lebanon's Hezbollah.
The group's chief Hassan Nasrallah said Tuesday that Hezbollah is not interested in a war with Israel, and certainly not in the near future, Israel's Channel 2 news reports.
