Israel confirms strikes against Iranian targets in Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that Israel carried out airstrikes against Iranian targets in Syria over the weekend, according to various media reports on Sunday.

In a rare public admission of such an attack, Netanyahu said at the beginning of a cabinet meeting on Sunday that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) attacked Iranian warehouses containing Iranian weapons at Damascus's international airport. He added that Israel had hit Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria on several dozen prior occasions.

Netanyahu's revelations confirmed previous reports on Friday that the IAF had conducted air raids over Damascus. The reports stated the same facts as Netanyahu but did not mention that the targets that had been hit were Iranian.
