U.S.: Israel Airstrikes in Syria

This can’t be good. CNN reports that the U.S. now says that Israel probably conducted an airstrike in Syria on Thursday or Friday. In this window, the U.S. reportedly has data that shows that Israel flew warplanes over Lebanon—but the Israeli warplanes probably did not enter the nation. While Israel has not commented on the situation, a source “close” to the nation’s defense said that Israel will do anything to stop the transfer of weapons from Syria to terrorists. Officials also said they had no reason to believe Israel was targeting a chemical weapons facility.
