BEIRUT: Israeli defense officials are preparing for Hezbollah to target senior Israeli figures in retaliation for an airstrike on the Lebanon-Syria border, according to a report published Wednesday in the Israeli daily Haaretz.

The report, which relies on Israeli sources, said Hezbollah is not expected to react immediately and that Israeli military leaders are preparing accordingly.

Israeli warplanes targeted two trucks Monday night that were transporting missiles and a missile launcher into Lebanon, killing four Hezbollah operatives, security sources told The Daily Star.

There was no official comment from Hezbollah over the attack. Israel did not directly claim responsibility for the strike, although Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a day after the strike that his country was doing everything "necessary" to protect the country, while Israeli media speculated that the Army was behind the raid.
