Israeli forces have attacked a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, a western diplomat and a security source said on Wednesday, at a time of growing concern in the Jewish state over the fate of Syrian chemical and conventional weapons.
Earlier, the Lebanese army reported a heavy presence of Israeli jets over its territory throughout the night.
Western source says Israeli forces attacked a target on Syrian Lebanon border as tensions regarding Syrian chemical weapons increase.
Reuters quotes western diplomatic security source commenting on air force attack, saying it was definitely a hit. No comment from Israel

Israel done it a few months back also. As much as I disagree with them attacking any target in Syria, I don't think anything will come of this.edit on 30-1-2013 by DarknStormy because: (no reason given)

Israel's Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said on Sunday that any sign that Syria's grip on its chemical weapons was slipping, as President Bashar al-Assad fights rebels trying to overthrow him, could trigger Israeli intervention.
Now let me say this the Israeli government does not have the best interest for its people and they are constantly trying to trigger a wide scale war.
I think the Russians will not accept that and i belief they made it very clear that they will protect there interests ( Oil,Gas,Arms and so fort )

I was thinking Israel would survive for many more years ahead, but I am convinced with luck that they will be wiped off the map within a few weeks now, I am glad they have decided to give a reason everyone who hate them to do the job that most seem to have been waiting for.
Iran, Russia, China have no reason to allow Israel to have Nuclear weapons now, so WW3 is closer, and Israel have blown every chance of keeping out of it.

So...Israel launched an airstrike on a convoy near the Lebanese border,or it launched an airstrike on a research facility/arms depot near Damascus,or Israel launched an airstrike on a convoy near the Lebanese border and an airstrike on a research facility/arms depot.Both reports seem to be confirmed at this time.Is this the beginning of an all out war in the region?
