    Or maybe they saw a chance to destroy some missiles.

     Since this attack does little in practical terms to aid the revels, why do you think it was conducted to aid the rebels? Israel and Syria are legally in a state of war. Such clashes have occurred many times over the years when no civil war was brewing.

    More info will come out. I'll not be hardening my conclusions prematurely.

      seperately targeted a barracks of elite pro Assad forces.

        If it was in the diary I missed it.

        I still don't see one bombing mission changing the tide of battle though. I doubt Israel is eager to get bogged down in a hot war with Syria. It could also be argued that the one thing which might rally more Syrian and/or regional  support to Assad would be if Israel openly took sides in the Syrian civil war. But I sure don't know anything for sure.
