New INSS Insight - Syrian Weapons in Hizbollah Hands
A new issue of INSS Insight is posted on our site:
According to foreign sources, about two weeks ago, Israel attacked targets in Syrian territory. Assuming that a convoy of SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles en route from Syria to Lebanon was in fact attacked by Israel, as was reported by foreign sources, several questions arise. What other types of weapons could Syria move to Lebanon? What are the possible reasons for Syria choosing to move these weapons to Lebanon at this time? The article addresses these questions, discussing the motives behind the possible transfer of weapons and the implications for Israel.
