This morning (Saturday), Arab media outlets reported that Israel conducted yesterday’s airstrike in Syria in order to prevent North Korean missiles from reaching Hezbollah. As reported yesterday by JOL, an anti-aircraft missile was shot at Israel in response to the airstrike, which was intercepted by the IDF’s Arrow System.

According to a report on the Arab news website Rai al-Youm, political groups and reliable Jordanian sources believe that there is a connection between recent Israeli military and intelligence operations along Israel’s borders with Syria and Lebanon and between leaked information claiming that Hezbollah has obtained extremely technologically advanced missiles from North Korea.

The sources also reported that the weapons that were bombed by the IAF in Syria and were to be transported to Hezbollah, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke about, are already in the terrorist organization’s hands. The report did not state whether it was in reference to yesterday’s airstrike or other airstrikes allegedly conducted by Israel in Syria.
