Syria: Israeli jets strike Chemical Factory.

(Masyaf) Last night IDF jets flying over Lebanon struck a Syrian military base suspected of containing a chemical weapons plant The Syrian military has admitted the attack took place on the state’s scientific studies and research centre near the city of Hama, which is responsible for research and development of nuclear, biological, chemical and missile technology and weapons stating two people were killed near the town of Masyaf in western Syria and caused unspecified material damage.

"Israeli warplanes at 2:42am today fired a number of missiles from Lebanese air space, targeting one of our military positions near Masyaf, which led to material damage and the deaths of two members of the site. Syria's army warns of the serious repercussions of such acts of aggression on the security and stability of the region."

Amos Yadlin a former head of Israeli military intelligence twittered an interesting fact:
Strangely enough the strike took place on the tenth anniversary of Israel's destruction of a Syrian nuclear reactor and just a day after a United Nations investigation panel reported that Syrian government forces had carried out at least 27 chemical attacks since the civil war broke out in 2011.
