An intelligence official in the Middle East has confirmed that Israel launched a second airstrike in three days Syria.
The official tells The Associated Press that the target of Sunday's strike was a shipment of advanced guided Iranian-made missiles believed to be on their way to Lebanon's Hezbollah militant group.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to disclose information about a secret military operation to the media, says the strike took place in Damascus.
The statement comes hours after Syria's state media said Israeli missiles struck a research center near the Syrian capital, Damascus, early Sunday, setting off explosions and causing casualties.
An Israeli airstrike also struck Syria on Friday.
