Israel Pressures Obama to Stop Hezbollah Getting Syrian Missiles

Monday, 18 Mar 2013 12:20 PM

By Jim Meyers

Israel will pressure President Obama during his visit that starts Wednesday to launch air strikes against Syria’s missiles before they can fall into the hands of Hezbollah, according to a report from The Guardian.

If the United States won’t act, Israel will at least ask for full American support for an Israeli military action against the missiles.

The Obama administration has so far indicated that it will intervene militarily in Syria only to prevent the Assad regime from using its chemical or biological weapons against Syrian rebels.
In January, Israeli warplanes destroyed a Syrian convoy that the Israelis say was carrying Russian-made missiles to Hezbollah, and a Western diplomat told The Guardian that Israel considers another war with Hezbollah “inevitable.”
