Minister of Intelligence Yisrael Katz on Thursday indirectly responded to reports that Israel's air force attacked a weapons depot situated in rural areas around Hisya, south of the Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday night, telling Army Radio that "Israel has previously operated and will continue to operate to prevent weapons smuggling from Syria to Hezbollah."

Katz also added that Israel's stance against the arming of Hezbollah and the establishment of Iran in Syria are well known.

Several reports claimed that the Syrian military launched a surface-to-air missile against Israeli jets from its 72nd Divison Base but did not hit them.
