“The Israeli Ministry of Defense published statistics on its military operations in 2019, whether in Syria, Gaza, or the West Bank. The official website of the ministry said that during the 2019 campaign, the Israeli army attacked about 54 targets in Syria. At the same time, they said they started 2019 by destroying six Hezbollah tunnels. This operation was carried out along the Lebanese-Israeli border and lasted almost a month. Israeli defense statistics showed that the army struck 51 targets in the West Bank, which is less than the previous year,” Al Masdar News reports.
