Russia, Syria, Iran, the Arab League and Hezbollah condemned Israel for an alleged airstrike in Syria, calling it an act of aggression.
A day after Israel allegedly attacked a convoy in Syria allegedly carrying advanced weaponry to Hezbollah, Jerusalem refused to comment.
Citing sources, the Saudi al-Watan newspaper reported the Syrian regime has already transferred non-conventional weapons to Hezbollah. The report said President Bashar Assad’s regime has been transferring weapons to Hezbollah since the beginning of last year, including two tons of mustard gas and long-range missiles capable of carrying chemical warheads.
U.S. officials told The New York Times Jerusalem notified Washington about the attack, which Damascus called an act of “Israeli arrogance and aggression.” The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times quoted Western officials briefed on the raid as saying the truck convoy carried Russian-made-SA-17 missiles for the militia wing of Hezbollah.
Hezbollah called the attack “barbaric,” the The (Beirut) Daily Star said.
