Feb 3, 4:51 AM EST BEIRUT (AP) -- Syrian television has broadcast images of what it said is the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike on a research facility near Damascus earlier this week, showing destroyed vehicles and moderate damage to a building.
In Germany, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak made statements on Sunday strongly implying that Israel had carried out Wednesday's airstrike, which the U.S says was targeting a weapons convoy. The Jewish state had not until now officially acknowledged the attack.
"What happened in Syria several days ago ... that's proof that when we said something we mean it - we say that we don't think it should be allowed to bring advanced weapons systems into Lebanon," Barak said at a security conference.
U.S. officials say the strike hit a convoy of anti-aircraft weapons bound for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah while the vehicles were still on Syrian territory. The Syrian military said the target of Israeli jets was a scientific research center in the area of Jamraya, northwest of Damascus.

2. Destabilize Syria ? Hysterical.
Assad is a funny guy.
I guess he's still upset when Israel wiped out his nuclear missile factory that was near completion.
Cry me a river Bashar. Your days may be numbered.
