(Ynet News) Ron Ben-Yishai - All signs indicate that the strike on Friday near the Mezzeh Military Airport west of Damascus was aimed at destroying a shipment of accurate Iranian surface-to-surface missiles to Hizbullah. Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah and senior commanders of Iran's Revolutionary Guards announced recently that Hizbullah was receiving accurate missiles from Iran that could threaten most of the essential facilities and civilian and military airports in Israel. Israel is interested in reducing the number of such missiles in Hizbullah's possession.

The sources said the targets were missile depots and antiaircraft systems intended to serve Hizbullah's aerial defense system.
