Israel's outgoing Defence Minister Ehud Barak implicitly confirmed on Sunday an Israeli air strike on a military site in Syria this week.

Barak refrained from a direct confirmation but told the Munich Security Conference it was "another proof that when we say something we mean it. We say that we don't think that it should be allowable to bring advanced weapon systems into Lebanon".
