(Reuters) – Israeli forces have attacked a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, a Western diplomat and three regional security sources said on Wednesday, at a time of growing concern in the Jewish state over the fate of Syrian chemical and conventional weapons.
The sources, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the issue, had no further information about what might have been hit or where precisely the attack happened.
The Lebanese army reported a heavy presence of Israeli jets over its territory throughout the night.
“There was definitely a hit in the border area,” one security source said. A Western diplomat in the region who asked about the strike said “something has happened”, without elaborating.
The Back Channel, which is a blog of Al-Monitor, is reporting that it may have been a weapons convoy that was hit. More on story here.
Update: The Joooos don’t mess around.
