Israel Issues Routine ‘No Comment’ On Bombing of Missiles in Syria

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Israeli spokesman said “no comment” on reports from Lebanon that the Israeli Air Force bombed Syrian missiles destined for Hezbollah.

Explosions were reported in the Syrian port city of Latakia, which previously has been targeted and presumably by Israel to prevent “game-changing” weapons from being smuggled into Lebaon for Hezbollah.

Several Lebanese new sources as well as the Lebanese army reported that Israeli planes entered Lebanese airspace at low altitudes and remained in the air for more than one hour.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that a massive blast has destroyed a Syrian air defense base near the coastal city of Latakia. Syrian and Lebanese sources speculate that it was caused by an Israeli rocket strike from a naval vessel in the Mediterranean.

The Syrian Observatory and Twitter users quoted eyewitnesses who said the blast occurred near Snobar Jableh, just south of Latakia.

The Lebanese government news agency reported six Israeli aircraft flying through Lebanese airspace along the coast north of Beirut yesterday.
