Israel has conducted airstrikes in Syria based on "suspicions" of chemical weapon transfers, in a flagrant violation of the UN Charter, international law, and in direct violation of Syria's sovereignty. The Guardian in its report titled, "Israel carries out air strike on Syria," claims:
"Israeli warplanes have attacked a target close to the Syrian-Lebanese border following several days of heightened warnings from government officials over Syria's stockpiles of weapons."
It also stated:
"Israel has publicly warned that it would take military action to prevent the Syrian regime's chemical weapons falling into the hands of Hezbollah in Lebanon or "global jihadists" fighting inside Syria. Israeli military intelligence is said to be monitoring the area round the clock via satellite for possible convoys carrying weapons."
In reality, these "global jihaidists" are in fact armed and funded by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel since at least as early as 2007.
The Syrian government says Israeli warplanes have carried out air strikes on Wednesday in their territory.
According to the Syrian military, a scientific research facility in the outer districts of Damascus had been hit in Jamraya.
A building was destroyed, two people were killed and five wounded.
'Israeli warplanes today have violated our airspace at dawn and one of our centers for scientific research increases our defense capabilities in the field of Jamraya outside Damascus directly attacked,' a military official said, according to Syrian news agency Sana.
