Israeli warplanes reportedly stuck a convoy of weapons, inside Syria, that was destined for Hezbollah in Lebanon. The convoy was carrying Russian manufactured SA-17 missiles to be used by the terrorist organization to target Israeli Aircraft. Israel publicly warned Syria that it would take action to prevent the shipment of weapons to any terrorist group, especially chemical weapons. Israeli intelligence has been monitoring the areas between Syria and Lebanon for any sign of weapons convoys.
The SA-17 (Grizzly) is a mobile surface-to-air missile (SAM) system and in terrorist hands would curtail Israels ability to operate near or in Lebanese airspace against terrorist targets. It would be seen as a game changer in the region and a direct threat to Israel. Hezbollah can use the SA-17 to protect its missile launching sites and convoy routes from Syria and protecting terrorists from retaliatory airstrikes.
By providing Hezbollah SA-17 systems, who knows what the Syrians and Iranians will provide to the terrorists to use against the Jewish nation. If the Assad regime could goad Israel into targeting more facilities inside Syria he could rally the population against the Rebels by claiming they are being supported by the Zionists. The Iranians will be more than glad to assist any group planning to attack Israel.

You give the Muslim Terrorists in Israel SA-17 missiles and they will not shoot at Israeli jets, they will shoot at Airliners coming into Tel Aviv International Airport.
Lets get real here, Muslims always go for the soft targets. Hard targets shoot back.
Besides, you can kill 300 tourists with one missile in a 747.
