Syria strike attributed to Israel likely linked to weapons center

A daytime airstrike in Syria on Sunday that has been attributed to Israel may have been linked to Hezbollah’s precision-missile program, according to an Israeli defense research group.

The March 12 strike occurred in Syria’s Tartus Governorate near Route 54, west of the city of Masyaf. Tal Beeri, head of Research at the Alma Center, told JNS that Masyaf is a well-known “trouble spot” that has seen a number of alleged Israeli strikes in recent years.
