The reported attack follows an Agence France-Presse report that Israeli jets last night targeted a weapons-transport convoy near Syria’s border with Lebanon.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned about the dangers posed by Syria’s chemical-weapons arsenal in a country suffering a civil war.
