Pentagon Agency Backs Reports of Israeli Strike on Syrian Missiles

U.S. Defense Department intelligence lines up with reports that Israel recently bombed a delivery of Russian-made antiship missiles to Syria, the Daily Beast reported on Tuesday.

An informed U.S. government insider said the Defense Intelligence Agency had used pictures taken from space as well as other data to determine that Israel had bombed a Yakhont missile cache on July 5. The Pentagon office reported the finding in a July 10 analysis.

 

“Six more months from now, if nothing changes [in Syria], that’s going to require Israel to do more, not less," U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Tuesday. "Every time Israel has to take military action in the Middle East, that’s not a good thing.”
