**the set up of Syria is well on it's way**

ISRAELI warplanes struck the town of Masnaa, the main crossing point over the border between Lebanon and Syria, security sources said.

One person was wounded when three missiles slammed into the last customs building at the crossing point, digging craters in the middle of the road, they said.

The passageway was closed by the strike.

Israeli warplanes had attacked the same area on July 15, three days after the Jewish state launched a massive offensive on Lebanon following the capture of two Israeli soldiers by the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah.

The strikes came after Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah vowed to strike cities in the centre of Israel, declaring that the Jewish state had failed to win any military victory after days of bloody clashes with his guerrillas.

It also followed an announcement by an explosives specialist with the Israeli police said that the "unknown" missile fired by the pro-Syrian Hezbollah at the Israeli town of Afula on Friday was Syrian-made.
