Report: Israel Attacks Arms Convoy on Lebanon-Syria Border
Sources say 12 Israeli jets hit shipment from Syria
Unconfirmed reports indicate that Israel attacked an arms convoy traveling from Syria to Lebanon Tuesday night with as many as 12 Israeli jets participating in the raid.
According to Reuters, a "Western diplomat and security sources" said Israel attacked a convoy which may have contained chemical or conventional weapons.
Israel has expressed deep concern that chemical and advanced conventional weapons could end up in the hands of Hezbollah, a terror group allied with the terror state Iran.
Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom said Sunday that an arms transfer to Hezbollah “would be crossing a line that would demand a different approach.”
According to multiple sources, Israel sent its national security adviser, Yaakov Amidror, to Russia and its military intelligence chief Aviv Kochavi to the United States for consultations.
In Israel, military sources said they would not comment.
