Minister of Defense Moshe Ya'lon denied on Tuesday that Israel attacked last week an arms depot in Latakia, Syria, Israel Radio reported.

Ya'alon was speaking at a tour of a factory in Acre. 

Earlier in the month Ya'alon seemed to deny the strike that killed between 10 and 20 Syrian soldiers at the arms depot. Ya’alon then maintained: “For a long time we have continued to say that we are not involving ourselves in the bloody civil war in Syria. We have established our red lines and we are sticking to them.”

Reuters contributed to this report.
