Israel Bombs Chemical Weapons Factory In Syria

Netanyahu and Putin To Meet Amidst Israeli Concerns of Iran's Presence In Syria

While the IDF did not comment on the strike as it does not comment on foreign reports, it would not be the first time Israeli jets have hit Assad regime and Hezbollah targets in Syria.

However, An-Nahr, a Beirut based newspaper, quoted Israel's former National Security Advisor Yaakov Amidror, saying that the strike targeted a weapons development and manufacturing site that was producing arms for Hezbollah.

In May, an official in the military alliance backing Assad said that Hezbollah drew a distinction between Israel striking its positions in Syria and at home in Lebanon.

Reports, as yet unconfirmed, state that a chemical weapons facility was also hit in the attack.

Israel has carried out an air strike against a chemical weapons plant in Syria, Syrian and Lebanese media report.

But both in Israel and overseas there seemed to be little question that Israel was behind the attack, which was being seen in Israel as a message to Syria, and its main allies, Iran and Russian Federation.

Yadlin stated that it was now important to keep the escalation in check and to prepare for a Syrian-Iranian-Hezbollah response. The government has blasted accusations of chemical weapons use in Khan Sheikhun as "fabrications".

"The facility at Masyaf also produces chemical weapons and explosive barrels that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians", Yadlin said in the tweet.

An army statement said rockets fired from Lebanese airspace targeted the site near Masyaf, killing two soldiers.

The plant is known as the Scientific Studies Researchers Center, or Centre D'Etudes et de Recherches Scientifiques (CERS).

Although Israel reportedly launched the airstrikes, the report concludes it is possible the USA targeted the facility as a "backdoor means" at getting at North Korea.

And with Israeli claims that Iran is building missile production facilities in Lebanon and Syria for Hezbollah, the message could not be clearer.

Assad, not wanting to draw Israel into his country's war, has never responded.

Israel has previously carried out strikes believed to be targeting the transfer of weapons to Hizbollah, which fought a devastating war with the Jewish state in 2006.
