It was reported earlier this morning that Israel had bombed a Syrian convoy on the way to Lebanon. It looks like now they are broadening their attack to inside Syria as well to prevent chemical weapons from getting in the wrong hands:
BUSINESS INSIDER – The Associated Press reports that “Syrian state TV has confirmed that Israeli warplanes bombed a military research center northwest of the capital, Damascus.”
Previous reports of the overnight Israeli airstrike stated that the jets targeted a convoy of trucks carrying Russian-made SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles moving near the Lebanon-Syria border.
State TV says the strike targeted a military research center used to advance Syrian military capabilities in the area of Jermana, causing material damage.
“Israeli fighter jets violated our air space at dawn today and carried out a direct strike on a scientific research center in charge of raising our level of resistance and self-defense,” Syrian state news agency SANA said in a statement.
