One of the strikes, he said, hit a site near the Syrian army’s fourth armored division in the city of al-Saboura. According to foreign sources, the jets carried out the attacks from Lebanese airspace.
The rebel source said that the attack targeted a Hezbollah -bound anti-aircraft missile convoy but according to recent estimates they were ground-to-ground missiles.
Earlier on Saturday, an Israeli official told the Associated Press that the shipment was not of chemical arms, but of “game changing” weapons bound for Hezbollah.
Another Israeli source who spoke with the New York Times said that while chemical weapons draw much attention, Israel is far more concerned about advanced conventional weapons.
