Israel Jet Strike in Syria Said to Hit Arms for Hezbollah

Israeli jets hit Syrian trucks carrying anti-aircraft missiles for the Islamic militant group Hezbollah across the border into Lebanon, according to a Western official who asked not to be named citing regulations.

The Iran-backed Hezbollah “strongly” denounced Israel’s strike and called for widespread condemnation of the “barbaric aggression.” Senior Iranian officials arrived in Syria last night for a three-way meeting with Hezbollah, the pro-government Syria Steps website said.
