(Worthy News) - The Syrian army claimed Tuesday that Israeli fighter jets and rockets targeted positions inside the war-torn nation overnight, marking a potential uptick in tensions between Israel and Iran-backed Hezbollah militants operating there.

While Israeli officials declined to comment, Reuters reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had said Tuesday that Israel’s policy is to prevent Hezbollah from moving “game-changing weapons” out of Syria.

“We back [the policy] up as necessary with action,” Mr. Netanyahu said in response to a reporter’s question about the Syrian army’s claim, although he did not explicitly confirm that Israel had carried out the overnight strikes. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
