- Israeli Jets Strike Syrian Chemical Facility In Rare Daylight Attack
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
On a day that’s already witnessed significant developments along the Syrian-Israeli Golan border region after an overnight evacuation of hundreds of White Helmets members and their families by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Israeli jets have reportedly carried out a major airstrike on a Syrian government facility in northwest Syria in Hama province.
Syrian state SANA news has confirmed what it’s calling an “Israeli aggression” near the city of Masyaf, indicating the “losses are only material”, while early reports in both regional social media and in official Israeli media sources allege the site is a facility for the production and storage of chemical weapons.
The Times of Israel reports that the targeted building is associated with Syria’s well-known Scientific Studies and Research Center (or also commonly CERS) near Masyaf.
