Bent on halting any transfer of weapons to Lebanon's Hezbollah, Israel has bombarded a position of the powerful Shiite group on the Lebanon-Syria border, sources say.Hezbollah is an arch-enemy of Israel, and has sent thousands of fighters across the border to aid Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime as it battles Sunni-led rebels.There was no official comment on the raids from Hezbollah, the Lebanese government, Syria or Israel.The morning after the attack, the Israeli army refused to comment, but Israel's media implied the Jewish state's air force was behind the strikes.Israel's top-selling daily Yediot Aharonot ran the front page headline, "Foreign reports: Israeli strike in Lebanon", while referring to strikes Israel implicitly admitted carrying out against Hezbollah in Syria last year. Other media pointed to weekend remarks by Israeli army chief Lieutenant General Benny Gantz who warned against arms transfer from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
