    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, SEPTEMBER 19 - An arms deposit was destroyed in the Israeli air raid carried out in north-western Syria in the night between Monday and Tuesday and after which a Russian military plane in the area was accidentally downed.

    According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the Israeli jets hit and destroyed an entire building in the industrial area of Latakia, the main Syrian port in the Mediterranean.

    Israel said the arms deposits contained material and weapons for Lebanon's Hezbollah, a pro-Iranian and anti-Israeli movement.
