Targeted Missiles for Hizbullah Could Have Downed Israeli Jets

Israel’s undeclared bombing of anti-aircraft missiles along the Syrian-Lebanese border foiled Hizbullah’s aim at being able to down Israel Air Force jets that destroyed a Syrian nuclear site under construction in 2007.

Anonymous Israeli sources have confirmed Wednesday’s strike early morning targeted Russian-made SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles, which include sophisticated electronic equipment. Restricting Israel’s ability to conduct surveillance flights over Lebanon and to bomb terrorist targets would leave the Jewish state a sitting duck for Hizbullah.

The most convincing statement that Israel hit the truck convoy was the Syrian regime’s claim, after denying that Israel invaded its air space, that the IAF bombed a “research center” near Damascus.

With a near-zero rating of reliability, Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime has been desperately churning out propaganda to blamed “foreign terrorists,” meaning opposition forces, and Israel for the mayhem in the country.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told foreign media that the aerial strike indeed took place along the highway from Damascus to Beirut and near the border with Lebanon

The IDF’s military intelligence chief, Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, flew to Washington before the bombing attack to “directly relayed our concerns to the Americans,” according to an intelligence officer quoted by McClatchy newspapers.
