 ( The Israel Air Force (IAF) last week struck "missiles and related equipment" that were slated to be transferred to Hezbollah at a Syrian military base near the Mediterranean coastal city of Latakia, an unnamed White House official told CNN.

Israel’s Channel 10 TV network quoted Israeli officials who called the White House’s revelation of the strike near Latakia “scandalous,” the Times of Israel reported. It is “unthinkable” that an Israeli ally like America would leak such information, the officials said.

A report on Israel’s Channel 2 network confirmed that the leak on the Israeli airstrike “came directly from the White House.”
