Israeli warplanes struck a military base near the Syrian city of Latakia on Thursday, an Obama administration official confirmed to CNN.
An explosion at a missile storage site in the area was widely reported in the Israeli press, but an attack has not been confirmed by the Israeli government.
The target, according to the Obama administration official, was missiles and related equipment the Israelis felt might be transferred to Hezbollah. The official declined to be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information.
Stay here for constant updates and more information on these events. Initially I would say this is a good thing, stopping Hezbollah from getting weapons, but lets see if the international community recognizes the importance of keeping those weapons away from a terrorist organization.

They have every right to be upset at the US for this. Especially if it was done on purpose, which I wouldn’t be surprised if it was considering Obama’s past behavior and comments regarding the middle east.
