    (CNN) -- The United States believes Israel has conducted an airstrike into Syria, two U.S. officials tell CNN.

    U.S. and Western intelligence agencies are reviewing classified data showing Israel most likely conducted a strike in the Thursday-Friday time frame, according to both officials. This is the same time frame that the U.S. collected additional data showing Israel was flying a high number of warplanes over Lebanon.

    One official said the United States had limited information so far and could not yet confirm those are the specific warplanes that conducted a strike. Based on initial indications, the U.S. does not believe Israeli warplanes entered Syrian airspace to conduct the strikes.

    Both officials said there is no reason to believe Israel struck at a chemical weapons storage facilities. The Israelis have long said they would strike at any targets that prove to be the transfer of any kinds of weapons to Hezbollah or other terrorist groups, as well as at any effort to smuggle Syrian weapons into Lebanon that could threaten Israel.

    This is probably the best move that Israel can make. Without chemical weapons, the regime will have to fight a vicious ground fight, and the rebels won't have access to them if/when they finally take over. The ideal solution to this is a prolonged conflict that paralyzes the Assad regime, drains Iran's resources and kills al Qaeda and Salafist fighters en masse.
