A senior US official informed sources that today's air strike against weapons warehouses in Syria was carried out by Israel, using American intelligence reports. The official said that the attack targeted weapons stockpiles imported from Iran, according to a report by The Associated Press. The official added that the warehouses hit also served as part of a pipeline for importing components used in Iran for the country's nuclear program. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed the planned airstrike with Mossad chief Yossi Cohen on Monday at a meeting in the Washington restaurant Cafe Milano, the source claimed.
