The Obama administration has made public an Israeli attack on a military installation near the Syrian port city of Latakia earlier this week. The Israeli government has not admitted to attacking its neighbor.
“We don’t refer to foreign reports,” the Israeli government told when asked for comment by CNN.
The Israelis struck a storage facility containing missiles and related military equipment they claim would have been transferred to Hezbollah, the Lebanese resistance group formed after Israel invaded the country in 1978.
Israel has violated Syrian sovereignty and launched military attacks inside the country on numerous occasions. In January, the Israelis bombed a convoy in Syria it said was moving weapons to Hezbollah.
