Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman stated on Wednesday afternoon that Israel is engaged in efforts to prevent Hezbollah from smuggle sophisticated weaponry from Syria to its headquarters in Lebanon.

Lieberman made the remark while addressing Arab media reports earlier in that day that claimed Israeli jets had struck Hezbollah and Syrian military targets near Damascus.

"We are working primarily to protect the security of our citizens and defend our sovereignty, and we are attempting to prevent the smuggling of sophisticated weapons, military equipment and weapons of mass destruction from Syria to Hezbollah," he said at a meeting with EU ambassadors in Israel.
