IAF took out S-300's in Latakia?

There are several reports out confirming that the IAF struck the Syrian port of Latakia late Sunday night or early Monday morning, although so far there is no official confirmation from Israel or Syria. The more interesting question is the target. At least one report indicates that the IAF hit Russian-supplied S-300 surface-to-air missile batteries.
A powerful explosion occurred late Sunday night, shaking the Syrian city of Latakia. The social networks in Syria were rife with reports that "Zionist fighter planes attacked the weapons storage facilities in the city's port," adding that "stocks of S-300 missiles were struck."
Syrian opposition forces confirmed the explosion, while Israeli security sources declined to comment. Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime denied reports of the explosion or of an attack.
JPost is also reporting that the target was S-300 missile launchers
Israeli fighter planes bombarded S-300 missile launchers in the Syrian port city of Latakia late Sunday, Syrian opposition groups were quoted as saying by Israel's Channel 2 television. Residents of the city reported hearing loud explosions just around midnight.
Opposition sources are quoted as saying that the explosion took place in the Sheikh Dahar neighborhood just near the local port, Channel 2 reported. The claims by the opposition have not been confirmed by any official sources.
