Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in a statement said that Israel will not allow Hezbollah to acquire advance weaponry.
“When we identify attempts to transfer advanced arms to Hezbollah, and we have intelligence information and we have the operational plan, we act to prevent it,” Netanyahu said. “That’s what happened and that’s what will happen.”
However, a Syrian Army officer denied that Hezbollah were even targeted in Palmyra, and rather only minor damage to defences were made.

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Syrian political commentator Afraa Dagher. Throughout the conflict she has written pieces on the reality of this much misunderstood war as well as made appearances on a variety of global media outlets, including RT.
