The Syrian army announced that an Israeli airstrike targeted a military research facility near Damascus.
But a number of media reports conveyed a very different tale: They maintained the Israelis struck a convoy of trucks headed across the border, carrying “game-changing” arms destined for Syria’s ally Hezbollah.
Several key players, namely Israel, Hezbollah and the United States, opted to remain silent about the incident, meaning that the field for rumor and speculation remains wide open.
