Report: Two Hezbollah men killed in alleged IAF strike on Syrian sites storing Russian-made advanced missiles for Hezbollah; Moscow demands explanation

Fire from alleged IAF strike in Syria
A heartfelt GFY should do it.
(Ynet) Two Hezbollah activists were killed Sunday in what foreign sources have said was an Israeli airstrike on military targets in Syria, the Al Arabiya news channel reported Monday. The report contradicts earlier claims by Syrian security forces, who said Sunday that there had been no casualties in the attack.

While official Israel continues to keep mum on the daylight attack in Syria that has been attributed to it, the Arab press has in the meantime published more and more details about the alleged Israeli assault.

Al-Arabiya also said that one of the two dead men had been a senior military official in Hezbollah.

According to reports, which are so far unsubstantiated, eight Israel Air Force warplanes participated in the strikes close to the international airport on the outskirts of Damascus. The target, the reports say, was most likely a warehouse containing new Russian-made anti-aircraft missiles that were en route to Lebanon.
