” Foreign forces destroyed advanced Russian anti-ship missiles in Syria last week, opposition fighters have said – a disclosure that appeared to point to an Israeli raid.
Qassem Saadeddine, spokesman for the Free Syrian Army’s Supreme Military Council, on Tuesday said a pre-dawn strike on Friday hit a Syrian navy barracks at Safira, near the port of Latakia.
He said that the opposition forces’ intelligence network had identified newly supplied Yakhont missiles being stored there.
“It was not the FSA that targeted this,” Saadeddine told Reuters. “It is not an attack that was carried out by rebels.”
