Israel targets 'game-changing' missiles

Israeli officials confirmed on Saturday that the country's air force carried out a strike against Syria. They said the target was a shipment of advanced missiles bound for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
The officials said the attack took place early Friday and targeted sophisticated "game-changing" weapons. One official said the target was a shipment of advanced, long-range ground-to-ground missiles.

Israel, too, is worried about becoming caught up in Syria's war. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyau said this week that a missile attack from the Lebanese Shia militant group Hezbollah was one of his chief concerns.

This is what Israeli officials said, but there is no reason to believe it reflects any reality. Israel's motives might be much more sinister, and somewhere the report SHOULD HAVE noted that Israel's unilateral attack was probably against international law.

Perhaps because Israel's breaks international law so routinely, virtually daily with its overflights of Lebanon, it is not news when it happens. Is this perhaps why CBC didn't mention it - because it was not really "new news".
