Obama says he won't comment on Israeli airstrike
Monday - 5/6/2013, 4:40am EDT
SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he won't comment on an Israeli airstrike against Syria that targeted a shipment of advanced missiles believed to be headed for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
Israeli officials on Saturday confirmed the strike, which took place early Friday.
Obama told the Spanish-language network Telemundo in an interview that he will defer to the Israeli government for comment. He also repeated his view that the Israelis justifiably have to guard against the transfer of advanced weapons to organizations like Hezbollah. The U.S. considers Hezbollah a terrorist organization.
Obama conducted the interview on Saturday, and a portion of the president's answer to a question about the airstrike was broadcast on MSNBC.
