report:

 We observed the field of the Swift GRB 120118B (Littlejohns et al.,
 GCNs 12852, 12854) with ORI-40 telescope of Kitab ISON observatory on
 Jan. 18 between (UT) 17:39:55 and 18:10:51. We obtained several
 unfiltered images with exposure of 60 seconds. On the stacked image we
 do not detect a source reported by D'Avanzo et al. (GCN 12870). The
 photometry is based on nearby reference stars of USNO-B1.0 (R2
 magnitudes):
