Was this a separate attack? Or was this part of the same package strike that took out a SAM convoy? It is a bit confusing since no one really is giving details and just not sure if it was separate attack or just trying to confuse/muddy the water....

This article says that there was an attack on the depot, an attack(s) on a convoy(s) and maybe some other target.

I find it ironic that Assad is complaining to the United Nations about the incursion; while he continues to exterminate his own people. I'll suggest that the SA-17 missiles were stored and shipped from this facility. Israel admits to it's role over the weekend:
