Israel Officially Confirms Strike On ‘Syrian Nuclear Reactor’ In 2007 (Video)

Donate

On March 21, the Israel Defense Forces shared details of an airstrike, which destroyed an alleged nuclear reactor under construction in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor back in 2007. This was the first time when Israel officially acknowledged carrying out the secret raid.

“During the night of September 5th and 6th, 2007, the Israeli Air Force destroyed a nuclear facility in its last stages of construction in the Deir ez-Zor region in Syria, 280 miles north-east of Damascus,” the military said in a press release. “Four F-16 jets eliminated a nuclear threat not only to Israel, but to the entire region.”

The attack was monitored from the aerial war room by all key political and military officials at the time, including Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

“Two fighter jets, F-16I and F-15I left the base at 10:30 pm and flew low to stay undetected. The whole operation took four hours,” the Israeli military noted claiming that the nuclear facility was “damaged beyond repair.”

“The operation was deemed a success by the Chief of the General Staff. The nuclear facility was destroyed and an escalation in the region prevented.”

  • Israel officially confirms it is a rogue state that runs invasions into sovereign neighbour states – and then they whine that people think they stink worse than putrid acid.

      Israel has been a terrorist state from it’s inception. The fact that it acknowledges that fact from time to time changes nothing.

        India disappointed with Russia’s fifth-generation Su-57 fighter
        21.03.2018
        “Officials with the Indian Air Force believe that Russia’s fifth-generation Su-57 fighter jet does not correspond to required characteristics and is inferior to the American F-35 and F-22. Therefore, the Russian-Indian program for the development of the fifth-generation fighter can be continued only after a relevant political decision is made”

          According to the Hindustan Times a plane in development, emphasis on development, doesn’t meet somebody’s expectations. Ok, I get that, what’s your point? Before you respond, I just want to point out that expectations can vary from one person to another, and often times can be influenced by whom they are dealing with in the field of geopolitics, trade and controls the media etc. etc.

          Ok, make your point…

        • So…. the SU-57 flies for LESS than 30 minutes?

        • Hrky75

          Indian Air Force, an outfit that spent 40 years ans 2 bn $ in order to build the Tejas – shoddy built 1970s technology that will fly and fight in 21st century, good luck with that – is not satisfied with Su-57. To be honest, I’d be concerned if they WERE satisfied with it…Indian military should learn to design and manufacture a functioning assault rifle first, before BS-ing about complex technology…

      Oh Israel would gloat if something is true but the bombed out site yield no radioactive fallout not even enough to be detected by IAEA equipment and method.

    • Starlight

      Actually jews BOAST about this status, not decry it. Jews above the laws of Man. The rest of Humanity merely sub-Humans placed on Earth to serve the jews.

    Israel is destruction machine of Arab states.

    What’s the message israhell? Are you going to pay for the damage? Or is this a demonstration of how good you are at distraction? We know, unfortunately, the whole world knows.

    • Rakean Jaya

      Exactly this is my question. Why they repealing it now? My guest is that they try to distract from downed Israel f-16s and condition of Israel NFZ in Syria airspace righ now.

      • 1691

        Demonstrating a weird strength? A warning? A reminder of being able to do bad things? We know it. I hope they get a proportional respond. They don’t deserve better.

  • KennyB

    So, as usual, it’s one rule for Israel and the USA, and another for everyone else. We may have nuclear weapons, and proliferate them wherever we like, but YOU may not. It’s ok for us to have civilian nuclear power, but, despite the rules of the NPT, it’s not ok for you to have civilian nuclear power if WE think you should not.

  • HighLord Gaz

    The problem here is that the building in question was not a nuclear reactor. It was too small to house a heavy-water natural-uranium plutonium making reactor which the West and Ziocuntz claim, and the location only had a single building, and none of the associated auxiliary buildings or cooling towers you would expect.

    As usual, all we hear are lies and BS.

        MORE REPORT OF THIS IN consortium news.

    • Starlight

      Sorry, are you making the RACIST claim that only jews can build nuclear weapons for ‘self defense’? To counter the depravities of Israel, every nation in the region needs a counter to the jewish nukes, and that means nukes of their own.

      • ?… reactors are for energy not self-defense

  • Smaug

    Apparently the IDF no longer considers it relavent if they’re declassifying it. No one had much doubt at the time given that the IAF pulled the same move on Saddam’s reactor at Osirak.

      Their pathetic attempt at linking North Korea nuclear program into something called Syrian nuclear WMD effort ended up very embarrassing that they written off the whole thing.
      But now we have equally or even worse attempt such as Khan Sheikoun Gassing and Novichok nonsense a pass into media so why not bring it up again ?

    • Starlight

      Throughout history, the jews have always loved to boast about their atrocities. When they deny a thing OFFICIALLY, it is only to meet the political needs of the zionist leaders of Russia, the UK and USA.

  • Bob

    They announce this now – of course – just as US is announcing they are building an illegal base in lower Dier Ezzore on top of Syria’s occupied oil resources. The Israeli motivation to announce this now is simply to assist the US with their domestic PR efforts, to justify increasing US occupation far beyond the previous Kurd cover story – ie expanding US intervention against the US popular mood. The obvious intended implication of the Israeli announcement being to suggest Dier Ezzore was allegedly the previous site of Syrian nuclear weapons effort and expanded US occupation bases in area curtails that ‘threat’. Basic collusion, using same old ‘WMD’ rationale since 2003, to publicly justify expanding US bases southward in Dier Ezzore – with explicit intent to hold Syria’s hydrocarbon resources as hostage.

    • Rakean Jaya

      Yes, may be you are right bob, it seems reasonable for me.

  • Don’t read butthurt replies

    Pathetic weak inbred reptilians Israelis seem to love doing attacks in the of September.

  • Lemon1987

    IDF try this now and I bet u will be shot just right after Golan highs…:P

  • michael bruce

    Dosen’t really look like a reactor building to me.

    • as

      Because they have a positive sample taken in a WASHROOM of smaller building around the biggest building in the sites they think the site is a reactor nuclear. It’s stupid.

  • as

    IT IS NOT EVEN A NUCLEAR REACTOR IN THE FIRST PLACE AND THE SAMPLE THAT YIELD A POSITIVE RESULT OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL IS ADMITTED TO BE CONTAMINATED SAMPLE. THERE ARE NO NUCLEAR REACTOR NONE NOT EVEN THE CORE NEEDED FOR THE SAID REACTOR EXIST IN THE SITE.

  • Intended to provoke a reaction from Syria to justify Israel coming to the rescue of their imperiled puppet Orcs.

    The jewish animals that carried out this war crime had the full support of Putin- in Putin’s own words.

    Meanwhile, in the early 1960s, it was TONY BENN, when a minister in the British Government, who provided british plutonium to the jews of Israel to kick-start their nuclear fusion bomb project. Tony Benn was a fake socialist, who actually came from one of britain’s worst Deep State families- he realised working class leaders posed a real danger to the Deep State after WW2, so he volunteered to be a life long undercover agent. His son would later be a key lieutenant of the Earth’s worst living war criminal, Tony Blair.

    Of course, the jewish animals of Israel provided nuclear warheads to the WHITE POWER neo-nazi Apartheid regime of South Africa- and also sent biological warfare experts to the regime to carry out experimental plague attacks on ‘black’ ‘enemies’ of white ruled SA.

    Each of the three above are facts of history. Facts that prove the demonic evil of Israel and all jews who support Israel. Facts that prove the zionist nature of the UK and Russia.

    Had Syria had nuclear weapons, Syria would not have been in the mess that she finds herself now. For that matter, neither would have Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. North Korea did take note, however.
