Report: Israel bombed Syrian weapons convoy bound for Lebanon

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel Air Force jets bombed a convoy carrying advanced missiles from Syria to Lebanon, a Kuwaiti newspaper reported.

The Arabic language Al-Jarida daily cited an unnamed Israeli security official as saying the missiles were intended for the terrorist group Hezbollah.  The report, which has not been confirmed by another independent news source, did not say if the attack was in Syrian or Lebanese territory, only that it was on the border of the two countries.

The Lebanese media have not reported on any recent Israeli strikes.

Reports of heavy Israeli drone activity and over flights of Lebanon were reported over the weekend.

Israel was accused earlier this year of bombing weapons warehouses and convoys in Syria of arms meant for Hezbollah.
