Ynet News states that “Israeli forces have attacked a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight.” Sky News elaborates and reports three Israeli squadrons of four jets struck a convoy of trucks that had just left Lebanon and entered Syrian borders.
According to Sky News: “We know … that the Israelis have conducted an air strike involving three sorties by 12 planes – a very heavy airstrike, a high level of intent – on the village of Nabi Chit, near the bigger Syrian town of Zabadani. It’s inside Syrian territory, therefore representing a possible strategic escalation.”
The specific target, Sky News said, was either “shore to ship missiles – very sophisticated missiles of the kind used by Hezbollah against an Israeli ship a few years ago off the coast of Lebanon – or sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles.”
