(NEWSER) – Israel has again struck Syria, this time in a series of airstrikes in and around Damascus last night that targeted a shipment of Iranian-made missiles Israel believed were headed Hezbollah's way. "In last night's attack, as in the previous one, what was attacked were stores of Fateh-110 missiles that were in transit from Iran to Hezbollah," an intelligence source tells Reuters. Syrian state news said that the Jamraya military and scientific research was hit; it added that there were casualties, but did not give a number. "Night turned into day," said a witness.
