The newspaper quoted a senior Israeli security source as saying that on Monday, Israeli warplanes targeted a missiles shipment. The report did not say whether the attack occurred in Syria or Lebanon.

The unconfirmed report, which was not corroborated by any other news source, came on the heels of previous reports in Lebanon in recent days suggesting activity of Israeli jets and drones in Lebanese airspace.

In July, foreign media outlets reported that Israel was behind a series of bombings targeting several weapons stores in Syria. The weapons destroyed in the strikes were reportedly Russian Yakhont missiles kept at depots in Latkia.

The Israel Defense Forces declined to comment on the report.
