News in Russia is that Israel and Turkey collaborated in a recent pre-emptive strike against Syria to take out a weapons factory.

Ynet News reported that the English-language version of RT said on Monday that Israel had used one of Turkey’s military bases to send a pre-emptive missile against Syria and take out a weapons factory in Latakia.

“Our source is telling us that Israeli planes left a military base inside Turkey and approached Latakia from the sea to make sure that they stayed out of Syrian airspace so that they cannot become a legitimate target for the Syrian air force,” Ynet News reported, citing RT.

Other media sources report differently.

Britain’s Sunday Times said the Latakia attack involved an Israeli Dolphin submarine that fired a cruise missile from the sea. The Times also reported the target as 50 Russian-made Yahhont P-800 anti-ship missiles that had been sent to Syria President Bashar Assad. Meanwhile, CNN said Israel carried out the attack via IAF planes.
