Israeli warplanes strike shipment of Russian missiles at Syrian port

Post  fshnski on Thu Oct 31, 2013 6:47 pm

WASHINGTON — Officials say Israeli warplanes attacked a military target inside Syria.

An Obama administration official confirmed the attack happened overnight Thursday but provided no details.

Another security official said that the attack occurred in the Syrian port city of Latakia and that the target was Russian-made SA-125 missiles.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the attack.

At least twice earlier this year Israel launched airstrikes on shipments of missiles inside Syria.

'White House official confirms Israeli attack on Syrian missile site'

Post  fshnski on Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:00 pm

Israel conducted air raids against a Syrian missile base near the port city of Latakia early on Thursday, according to an anonymous US administration official.

The official, speaking to CNN, said Israel targeted missiles and related equipment out of concern that they would be transferred to Hezbollah.

It is unclear why the US would leak such information, as it could increase the pressure on Syria to retaliate against Israel.
