Israel attacked Syria? Air raid on military position kills two people

08 September 2017

Israel attacked a chemical weapons development facility near the city of Al-Maysaf in western Syria overnight Thursday, according to multiple reports on Twitter.

"The IDF policy is that we don't respond to foreign allegations or reports", an Israeli army spokesman told The Media Line.

Israeli officials have also previously said that Russian Federation, another Assad ally, and Israel maintain regular contacts to coordinate military action in Syria.

While the strike was in the framework of Israel's policy of preventing arms transfers to Hezbollah but "it's another level of interference", he added.

The Syrian Army said Thursday that Israeli warplanes had hit a military site in Hama province in the country's west.

They further said that the Israeli warplanes fired several missiles while in Lebanese air space.It warned of the "dangerous repercussion of such hostile acts on the security and stability of the region".

Syria has claimed that it destroyed all of its chemical weapons as part of an agreement reached in 2013 after a chemical weapons attack killed as many as 1,400 people in the suburbs of Damascus.

The United States has accused the SSRC of developing the sarin gas weapon allegedly used in a chemical attack on the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhun in April, which left dozens dead.

There was no independent confirmation that this was the target but the strike came hours after the United Nations officially accused Assad's regime of dropping chemical bombs on civilians more than two-dozen times, including a deadly sarin attack in Idlib in April.

"If Israel strikes Hezbollah in Lebanon, definitely it will respond", the official said.

But while Syria and Hezbollah were the two groups directly affected by the alleged Israeli airstrike, they aren't the only people operating out of the country.
