Ex-security chief: Apparent IAF attack in Syria targeted Hezbollah arms

Israel’s former national security adviser, Maj. Gen (ret.) Yaakov Amidror, tells Army Radio that an attack attributed to the Israeli Air Force overnight in Syria likely aimed to prevent the transfer of weapons to Hezbollah.

“Israeli intelligence apparently identified an apparent transfer of advanced weapons to Hezbollah in Syria,” he says. “And the State of Israel… therefore took action over one of its stated red lines, as we have done in the past.”
