Israel Bombs Convoy on Syria-Lebanon Border

Israeli jets reportedly struck a convoy on the Syrian-Lebanese border today.
The Jerusalem Post reported:

A western diplomat and three regional security sources said Wednesday that Israel Air Force warplanes struck a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, hours after Lebanon reported a series of three overflights by Israel in its airspace.

Israel has expressed increasing concern over the fate of Syrian chemical and conventional weapons as the country slides further into chaos after almost two years of civil war.

The sources, who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the issue, had no further information about what might have been hit or where precisely the attack happened, but the news website Al-Monitor quoted unnamed sources as saying that the target had been an arms convoy in Syria, close to the Lebanon border.

A Western diplomat in the region who asked about the strike said “something has happened”, without elaborating.

An unnamed security source told AFP: “The Israeli air force blew up a convoy which had just crossed the border from Syria into Lebanon.”

An activist in Syria who works with a network of opposition groups around the country said that she had heard of a strike in southern Syria from her colleagues but could not confirm.

    Israeli intelligence gathering is some of the best in the world. They must have learned that the military convoy crossing into Lebanon from Syria was carrying chemical weapons so they blew it up. Don’t blame them one bit. Hopefully, all the guys riding that convoy were killed too. Can never be TOO SAFE when dealing with the deathcult.

    I love the israelis. They do whatever they have to do to defend themselves. They dont take polls or ask the mainstream media “whats the politically correct way to do this” they just go and defend themselves and do what they gotta do.
    What a shame. We used to be a country like that. It hurts. It really hurts to see whats happening with our country. What a sad shame!!!

    Talk about Border Security….

  • has a story that the convoy was two cars carrying some Syrian officers and a larger number of Al Quds and Hezbollah types who were all blown up. That a helicopter was dispatched right away is an indication they were upper rank types.

    You mean that Israel is worried about WMD’s that Syria got from Saddam, the ones that were in Iraq? I was told that they didn’t exist!
