(Worthy News) - An Israeli security official on Wednesday confirmed responsibility for overnight airstrikes in Syria, saying the air force had hit a series of targets involved in Iranian arms transfers to the Hezbollah militant group.

Russia had criticized the airstrike, saying it endangered civilian flights. The comments highlighted the increasingly tense relations between Israel and Russia, which have grown strained since the September downing of a Russian plane by Syrian forces responding to an Israeli raid.

The Israeli official said the air force had attacked several Iranian targets in three main locations late Tuesday and early Wednesday. He said the targets were primarily storage and logistics facilities used by archenemy Iran to ship weapons to Hezbollah, an Iranian-backed Lebanese group that fought Israel in a 2006 war.

  1. I'm wondering if this news is true. Putin seems to have curbed Iran's from increasing their presence in Syria although some weapons still do get through to Hezbollah. Yet Israel still feels it necessay to attack Syria in places where Hezbollah doesn't seem to be present. Hmm, I know Israel would love for President Trump to change his mind and keep American forces in Syria.

    Maybe Israel should try to have a better working relationship with Putin. He's already keeping Iran at bay. And the U.S. certainly gives Israel enough money annually for defense ...... and other purposes.
