Netanyahu: our raids targeted advanced weapons of Hezbollah in Syria

Netanyahu: our raids targeted advanced weapons of Hezbollah in Syriaā€¯

"Overnight, IAF (Israel Air Force) aircrafts targeted several targets in Syria".

Israel has been largely unaffected by the Syrian civil war raging next door, suffering only sporadic incidents of spillover fire that Israel has generally dismissed as tactical errors by the Syrian army.

An Israeli army statement said "several anti-aircraft missiles" were fired following the raid, but that none hit their targets, rejecting a Syrian claim that one plane was downed and another damaged.

"Our central problem, and this above and beyond all of the other issues, is the transfer of advanced weapons from Syria to Lebanon", said Lieberman.

Hezbollah's Secretary-General also addressed the Syrian civil war, saying: "After six years of war in Syria, the countries and worldwide forces that devised the plot against Syria are faced with the bloody reality, which is a disappointment and a failure". "Several anti-aircraft missiles were launched from Syria following the mission and IDF (Israel Defense Forces) Aerial Defense Systems intercepted one of the missiles", the statement read.

A surface-to-air missile (SAM) was intercepted using the Arrow system, created to stop long-range ballistic missiles, reports say.

"The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation", Liberman said on Israel Radio. The jets, according to the statement, "hit Syrian military positions east of Homs, towards Palmyra".

It was an unusual confirmation by the Jewish state of air raids inside Syria. Last April, Netanyahu confirmed that Israel had struck Syria "dozens of times", breaking with the policy of remaining quiet about involvement in its war-torn northern neighbor.

Hezbollah is fighting alongside President Bashar Assad in the brutal Syrian civil war.

The skies over Syria are now crowded, with Russian and Syrian aircraft backing the regime's forces and a US-led coalition striking Isis and al-Qaida targets. Debris from the missiles, which were intercepted by the Arrow Defence system over Jordan, landed on residential homes in the west of that country near Inba and Irbid. When we notice attempts to assist Hezbollah with weapons, we put our intelligence and operational capabilities to thwart it.

The group said it was an Israeli drone that had carried out the strike.
