Israel Strikes Possible Hezbollah-Bound Truck Convoy Inside Syria

By Javier Manjarres

israeli_flag1U.S. officials are confirming that the Israeli Defense Force has  conducted an airstrike inside Syria, after expressing their fears that the soon-to-be ex-President of Syria, Bashir Asaad, would pass on chemical weapons to the  terrorist group Hezbollah, which serves as Syria’s military proxy against Israel. It will be interesting to see if Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s military ‘iron fist’ be hamstrung by the new ‘moderate’ Israeli Knesset.

 Top Israeli officials have recently expressed worries that if desperate, the regime of President Bashar Assad could pass chemical weapons to Hezbollah or other militant groups. U.S. officials say they are tracking Syria’s chemical weapons and that they still appear to be solidly under regime control.

Among Israeli security officials’ chief fears is that Hezbollah could get its hands on Syrian chemical arms and SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles. If that were to happen, it would change the balance of power in the region and greatly hinder Israel’s ability to conduct air sorties in Lebanon.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
