Confirmed: IAEA admits Israel destroyed Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007

The IAEA has confirmed for the first time that the Syrian facility that was destroyed by Israeli warplanes in 2007 was a nuclear reactor.
The head of the UN atomic watchdog, Yukiya Amano, on Thursday said for the first time that Syria tried in the past to secretly build a nuclear reactor, which was destroyed by Israeli warplanes five years ago, The Associated Press reported.

Syria denies that the building which was bombed actually contained any nuclear facilities.

For over two years, Syria has refused IAEA follow-up access to the remains of a complex that was being built at Dair Alzour in the Syrian desert when Israel bombed it to rubble in 2007.

The IAEA carried out an agreed inspection of another Syrian plant earlier in April as part of a long-stalled probe into suspected covert nuclear activity.

"The inspection is being conducted as planned," an official of the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said, giving no further detail.
The way things are going right now, a Western coalition may thank Israel in the not too distant future for destroying that plant. Just like George Bush and Dick Cheney thanked Israel in 1991 for destroying Iraq's Osirak reactor in 1981.

From the article: "... when Israel bombed it to rubble in 2007." ----
We need to read more stories like this. Especially about Gaza and hamas.
