U.S. officials confirm Israel strike in Syria

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. officials on Wednesday confirmed Israel launched air strikes against Syria last week, but would not discuss the intended targets.

“The strike I can confirm. The target, I can’t,” said one U.S. official. The official said there was more than one strike.

Another official called reports on the likely targets “confused.” The New York Times on Wednesday said likely targets were weapons caches that Israel believes Iran has sent through Syria to Hezbollah.

Syria has protested to the United Nations about Israel’s air strike against its territory on Thursday. Israel has declined to comment on the charge.
