Israel targeted Yakhont missiles using submarines

What you see above is about as official a statement as you are likely to get from an Israeli government source on this.

But off the record, it's all-but-been confirmed that Israel targeted Syria's Yakhont land-to-sea missiles in the wee hours of Friday, July 5, and probably did so using submarines as I first reported here. This is from the first link.
Al-Arabiya reports Israel was behind the strike in Syria’s Latakia last week, according to the U.S. sources  who said the attack was targeting a missile depot.
The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity to the U.S. news network said the July 5 strike targeted Russian-made Yakhont missiles in the Syrian coastal city, which neighboring Israel believed pose a threat to its forces, says al-Arabiya.
The sources said the Israeli Air Force had carried out the strike.
Qassem Saadeddine, spokesman for the Free Syrian Army's Supreme Military Council, told Reuters last week, "it was not the FSA that targeted this; it is not an attack that was carried out by rebels.
"This attack was either by air raid or long-range missiles fired from boats in the Mediterranean," he said, adds al-Arabiya.
