Airstrike convoy 'carried missiles bound for Hezbollah'

A well-placed Israeli defence analyst has told me that an airstrike reported to have taken place on the Syria-Lebanon border did indeed happen.

The target was a truckload of scud and anti-aircraft missiles believed to be bound for the militant group Hezbollah.

He told me that the hit happened in Hezbollah territory inside Lebanon.

However, as the Syrian, Lebanese and Israeli governments are likely to stay silent on the strike, this could be end of it for now.
