Amos Gilad, a senior defense official, denied reports by foreign news agency that Israel had confirmed that it had launched an attack in Syria on a Hezbollah bound missile shipment. "I don’t know what or who confirmed, who are these sources? In my book only the IDF's spokesperson unit is official," he said.
"Hezbollah does not have chemical weaponry. We have ways of knowing. They are not keen to take weaponry like this, preferring systems that can cover all of the country (Israel)," he added. (Ilana Curiel, Reuters)
