Israeli airstrike inside Syria targets weapon storage location to prevent arms moving to Hezbollah in Lebanon

Israeli warplanes conducted an airstrike against a Syrian military facility Thursday, US officials have confirmed.

Israel is believed to be limiting the transfer of weapons to Hezbollah who has close ties to the Syrian President Bashir al-Assad.

The attack is believed to be the fifth airstrike conducted by Israel inside Syria this year. Like the earlier airstrikes, the officials tell ABC that the latest attack presumably targeted advanced Russian missile weapons systems headed to the extremist group Hezbollah based in Lebanon.

An Israeli source also confirmed the attack to ABC News which like the four previous attacks this year has not been acknowledged by the Israeli government.

The air strike was first reported in Israeli newspapers which cited explosions at a missile storage facility near Latakia. The accounts differed as to what types of air defense missile systems may have been targeted by Israeli warplanes.

U.S. official say that the Israeli warplanes conducting the airstrikes usually launch missiles at targets inside Syria from inside Lebanese airspace so they are not exposed to Syria’s advanced air defense systems.
