According to four unnamed Western diplomats and regional security sources, "Israeli forces attacked a convoy on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight."

Little further information followed. Israel warned earlier about "high-tech anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles reaching Israel's enemies." Chemical weapons concerns were raised.

Lebanese military sources reported multiple Israeli incursions into Lebanon's airspace overnight.

According to one source:

"There was definitely a hit in the border area." Without elaborating, he said "something happened." 

Another said "The Israeli air force blew up a convoy which had just crossed the border from Syria into Lebanon."

An IDF spokeswoman said "We do not comment on reports of this kind."

France's Le Figaro said Israeli aircraft attacked an alleged weapons convoy traveling from Syria to Lebanon. It's not clear if it occurred in Syrian or Lebanese territory.

On Sunday, Israeli Vice Premier Silvan Shalom said "The entire world has said more than once that it takes developments in Syria very seriously."
