The Associated Press reported Friday evening that Israel had attacked a suspected weapons site in Syria.
The report, which cited American officials, said the strike occurred overnight Thursday into Friday. One official said the strike appeared to hit a warehouse.
Israeli leaders have expressed concerns that the Syrian regime would transfer chemical weapons to anti-Israel militant groups, including the Lebanese Hezbollah.
