Syria Claims Israeli Planes Struck Research Center Killing 2 People

Is Israel Really Preparing for Hezbollah

Israel has been watching events in Syria with alarm: the rising power of Iran and its Lebanese ally, Hezbollah - two of the main props of the Syrian regime - together with the reported periodic use of chemical weapons against civilians.

An Israel Defense Forces spokesperson declined to comment on the incident.

The army said the air raid targeted a facility near the western town of Masyaf, close to the Mediterranean coast, a stronghold of the Assad regime.

He said Lebanese Hezbollah fighters and Iranian military officials often visit the site.

Syria warned there could be "dangerous repercussions of such hostile acts on the security and stability of the region, reiterating determination to eliminate terrorism and uproot it from all the Syrian territories whatever the type of support provided to these terrorist groups is".

A Feld spokesman said the tiger belonged to an act contracted with the circus which ceased operations in May. When police arrived, they said the tiger began to run toward the Meadow Brook community off of Jodeco Road.

The UN report were the most extensive findings to date from global investigations into the use of chemical weapons during the six years of fighting in Syria.

The Israeli military did not comment on the reported attack, which has been its usual response to similar attacks during the Syrian conflict.

- A huge explosion that sent a fireball into the sky near the Damascus global airport in April was blamed by Syrian state media on an Israeli missile strike.

Tensions between Israel and Syria increased after reports that Israel hit a research center responsible for developing chemical weapons near the city of Hama.

Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad is meant to have destroyed all chemical weapons under a deal agreed with the global community in 2013.

Israel sees red lines in the shipment to Hezbollah of anti-aircraft missiles, precision ground-to-ground missiles and chemical weapons.

Since becoming actively involved in the Syrian Civil War in 2015, Russian Federation has worked closely with Iran in support of the regime of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad.

Former military intelligence head Amos Yadlin said the site "produces the chemical weapons and barrel bombs that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians".

Citing pro-government activists, Al-Masdar News, a pan-Arab news and commentary website, said Thursday that Israeli warplanes targeted the Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) in Masyaf in the west-central Syrian province of Hama at 3:30 a.m. Damascus time.

"The attack sent 3 important messages: Israel won't allow for empowerment and production of strategic arms". He said those killed and wounded were Syrian soldiers guarding the facility, and that he did not know if any Iranians were wounded.
