    Did Israel bomb Syria overnight? (Update – hit convoy of missiles headed to Hezbollah)

    Did Israel bomb Syria overnight? (Update – hit convoy of missiles headed to Hezbollah)

    That’s what some of the cable networks are reporting.

    It was just mentioned by Jennifer Griffin on Fox News:

    CNN reports:

    The United States believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria, two U.S. officials tell CNN.

    U.S. and Western intelligence agencies are reviewing classified data showing Israel most likely conducted a strike in the Thursday-Friday time frame, according to both officials. This is the same time frame that the U.S. collected additional data showing Israel was flying a high number of warplanes over Lebanon.

    One official said the United States had limited information so far and could not yet confirm those are the specific warplanes that conducted a strike. Based on initial indications, the U.S. does not believe Israeli warplanes entered Syrian airspace to conduct the strikes.

    Both officials said there is no reason to believe Israel struck at a chemical weapons storage facilities. The Israelis have long said they would strike at any targets that prove to be the transfer of any kinds of weapons to Hezbollah or other terrorist groups, as well as at any effort to smuggle Syrian weapons into Lebanon that could threaten Israel.

    The Lebanese army website listed 16 flights by Israeli warplanes penetrating Lebanon’s airspace from Thursday evening through Friday afternoon local time.

    Update 5-4-2013Times of Israel reports:

    Israeli officials on Saturday confirmed the Israeli Air Force carried out a strike against Syria and say it targeted a shipment of advanced missiles.

    The officials said the shipment was not of chemical arms, but of “game changing” weapons bound for the terror group Hezbollah. One official said the target was a shipment of advanced, long-range ground-to-ground missiles.

    I, for one, am amazed that people insist on testing Israeli resolve. The Israeli people have been in a fight for their lives for the better part of a century at this point. How could anyone expect them to react to an imminent threat in any other way (and, yes, he who is threatened is the one who gets to evaluate the seriousness of the threat and decide upon the best way to meet the threat)?

    What makes this so difficult to understand? See the threat (and be darned sure you know what it is you see). Kill the threat.
