Israeli raid on Syria may have targeted nukes

HotAir points to a New York Times article highlighting ominous developments in Syria.

Officials in Washington said that the most likely targets of the raid were weapons caches that Israel’s government believes Iran has been sending the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah through Syria…

...One Bush administration official said Israel had recently carried out reconnaissance flights over Syria, taking pictures of possible nuclear installations that Israeli officials believed might have been supplied with material from North Korea. The administration official said Israeli officials believed that North Korea might be unloading some of its nuclear material on Syria...

An Israeli Arab paper asserts that the target may have been a Syrian missile base funded by Iran. A confidential source -- since the Israelis aren't talking -- says that they're "very happy" with the op.

The AP reported earlier today that:

A US government official has revealed that Israeli aircraft in northern Syria had targeted weapons meant to be delivered to Hezbollah...

On Wednesday, a Lebanese paper reported that since the attack over Syria, there have been "severe disturbances in Lebanese communications systems and cellular frequencies."

Let's hope said comm problems extend to some major prank calling of Syria's dictatorship.
