Report: Israeli navy responsible for attack on missile depot in Syria
The Sunday Times reported that Israeli submarines are responsible for the attack on the missile depot in Latakia, Syria on 5 July. US officials were reported saying that the attack was an Israeli airstrike.
The alleged naval strike was reportedly coordinated with Pentagon that has expressed concerns over the Russian anti-ship missiles in Syria that could pose a threat to Israel’s naval forces and be used against Western ships transporting supplies to the opposition. Neither Israel nor the US has commented on the attack. Nonetheless, Prime Minister Netanyahu was reportedly insisting on Sunday that he would not allow the transfer of dangerous weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
