Outgoing Minister of Defense Ehud Barak may have hinted Sunday to Israeli involvement in last week's reported attack on a weapons convoy in Syria.

Barak, who was speaking at an international security conference in Munich, Germany, said, "I cannot add anything to what you have read in the newspapers about what happened in Syria several days ago."

"What happened in Syria several days ago [is] proof that when we said something we mean it... we say that we don't think it should be allowed to bring advanced weapons systems into Lebanon," the defense minister added.

There has been no Israeli government response to last week's reported attack.
