US official: Israel did not notify US before Syria raids

WASHINGTON - The US was not given any warning before air strikes in Syria against what Western and Israeli officials say were weapons headed for Hezbollah militants, a US intelligence official said on Sunday.
Without confirming that Israel was behind the attacks, the US intelligence official said that the United States was essentially told of the air raids "after the fact" and was notified as the bombs went off. 
"It would not be unusual for them to take aggressive steps when there was some chance that some sophisticated weapons system would fall into the hands of people like Hezbollah," the US intelligence official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
