Time to head for Damascus. The IAF caught the Syrians trying to re-arm Hezbullah.
Although Hizbullah has suffered a harsh blow from Israeli air force strikes which took out a good percentage of their available weapons, Syria was continuing to smuggle arms into Lebanon to rearm the group, IDF Operations Branch Head Major General Gadi Eisenkot said during a press briefing Tuesday.
Thus far, the IAF managed to intercept a number of trucks transporting rockets from Syria to Hizbullah, including trucks laden with the 20mm-diameter rockets with warheads like the one that hit the Haifa train depot Monday, claiming eight lives. Maj.-Gen. Eisenkot said he would be very surprised if official elements in Syria were unaware of these transports.
â€œThese are rockets that belong to the Syrian army. You canâ€™t find them in the Damascus market, and the Syrian government is responsible for this smuggling,â€ Eisenkot said, but stressed, â€œWe are not operating against Syria or the Lebanese army.â€
