"In just the last 36 hours, the air force struck Iran's warehouses, containing Iranian arms, in Damascus global airport", he added, referring to a Friday night sortie that Syria said it had answered with anti-aircraft fire.
After previously reporting the discovery of five tunnels, the Israeli military said another had been found yesterday, 55 metres deep and reaching "a few tens of metres" into Israel from a point 800 metres within Lebanon. Israel rarely comments on its operations so Mr Netanyahu's admission is rare.
