Israel May Have Targeted Advanced Missiles for Hizbullah in Syria

(Ynet News) Ron Ben-Yishai - The military facility near Damascus which was attacked Monday is known to Western intelligence services as one of the main development and production centers of the Syrian government's Scientific Studies and Research Center (CERS). The center is in charge of developing sophisticated weapons for the Syrian regime and may have been in the process of improving the precision of Hizbullah's missiles. A shipment of such weapons may have been making its way to Hizbullah. The big balls of fire that rose over the area after the strike indicate that the target was weapons, perhaps missiles, which were ready for delivery. Israel's mostly covert "war between wars" has so far prevented the transfer of large quantities of precision-guided missiles to Hizbullah, thereby helping to postpone the next war.
