There were reports of Syrian air defenses firing towards the border town of Quneitra. Arab sources reported that Israel Defense Forces were shelling areas near the city of Quneitra, perhaps related to reports of an IDF attack that began shortly before midnight. Arab sources claim the IDF hit a Hezbollah position, and that anti-aircraft fire was emanating from Syria.
