BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A US official Thursday confirmed an Israeli air raid on the Syrian city of Latakia.
The official, who declined to be identified, told CNN that Israeli warplanes struck Syrian missiles in Latakia on Wednesday.
Airstrikes targeted weaponry that Israel worried would be given to Hezbollah, the official said, according to the CNN report.
The confirmation comes after Al-Arabiya reported Thursday that Israel struck one target in Latakia and another in Damascus.
Israel has not confirmed or denied the airstrikes, CNN reported.
