Hezbollah condemns Israel's raid on Syria

BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group has condemned Israel's air raid on Syria, saying it targeted a "scientific research center."

The Thursday statement said Hezbollah "expresses full solidarity with Syria's command, army and people," and called the strike "barbaric aggression".

U.S. officials said Israel launched a rare airstrike inside Syria Wednesday, targeting a convoy believed to contain anti-aircraft weapons bound for Hezbollah.

The Syrian military denied the existence of any such shipment and said a scientific research facility outside Damascus was hit by the Israeli warplanes.

Hezbollah did not mention any convoy in the statement but said the strike aimed to prevent Arab and Muslim forces from developing their military capabilities.
