The United States was not given any prior warning before air strikes in Syria against what officials say were weapons headed for Hezbollah militants, a US intelligence official has said.
Without confirming that Israel was behind the attacks, the intelligence official said that the United States was essentially told of the air raids "after the fact" and was notified as the bombs went off. Speaking anonymously to Reuters the official said:
It would not be unusual for them to take aggressive steps when there was some chance that some sophisticated weapons system would fall into the hands of people like Hezbollah
