An Israeli air strike hit a shipment of Iranian weapons in the Syrian port of Latakia Tuesday, in the first such attack on the key facility, a war monitor said.
The Israeli raid “directly targeted an Iranian weapons shipment in the container yard,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Syrian state media reported the strike on the container yard at Latakia port without specifying what was targeted.
The Observatory, a UK-based organisation with a wide network of sources on the ground across Syria, said the raid triggered a series of explosions.
It reported “huge material losses” but added there were no immediate reports of casualties. –Agencies
