Israel strikes at Syria-Lebanon border, sources say
The Jerusalem Post ^ | 1/30/2013 | REUTERS, JPOST.COM STAFF

Posted on 01/30/2013 6:20:02 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather

A western diplomat and three regional security sources said Wednesday that Israel Air Force warplanes struck a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, hours after Lebanon reported a series of three overflights by Israel in its airspace.

Israel has expressed increasing concern over the fate of Syrian chemical and conventional weapons as the country slides further into chaos after almost two years of civil war.

I consider this to be Breaking News.

One reason the convoy was struck (reports) was that it was carrying Chemical Weapons.

There were reports of people donning gas masks.

The moron mayor of NYC thinks BIDEN has balls? Whatta laff.

BIBI is the only leader west of Jordan with a pair of testicles. I wish we had a grown up man in the White House.

There are now conflicting reports on this story (which might be why Matt Drudge pulled his links).

ITV is reporting:

Conflicting reports on 'airstrike' on Syria-Lebanon border

A Lebanese news agency is now denying that there's been an Israeli strike on its border with Syria.

A Lebanese military source has told me he heard sonic boom from jets last night, but no boom of an explosion.

As I post this on FR, ITV has now updated to say the IAF attack was on a missile convoy delivery from Syria to Hezbullah.

http://www.itv.com/news/story/2013-01-30/israel-strike-weapons-convoy-lebanon-syria/

Also at this posting time Drudge still has links to jpost and ynet on the IAF bombing raid, just not as top headlines.

Very scary headlines in Arutz Sheva( INN News) with gas masks being handed to civilian Israeli’s as fears Hizbollah will claim the gas missiles. I was sort of hoping Russia would make the rats pound sand but it sounds like absolute anarchy in many cities.

Debka is reporting it was a missile convoy in Syria destined for Hezbollah.

FoxNews is confirming there was an airstrike (contradicting ITV).

The FoxNews article seems to support the Debka article. (Missiles were in the convoy.)
