A weapons warehouse belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was attacked Wednesday night, according to a report by Al-Arabiya, quoted by Israel’s Kann public broadcasting network.

Unidentified aircraft fired missiles at the warehouse, located at the al-Hamdan airport outside Deir ez-Zor in the Al-Bukamul region in northern Syria.

It’s not clear who attacked the warehouse, and there has been no statement from the Syrian government.

During a joint presser in Lisbon Wednesday evening with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked by a reporter if he had “authorized these strikes [on eastern Syria] tonight?”

The prime minister brushed the question aside, replying, “I never talk about that.”
