Al Jazeera: U.S. Jets, Not Israeli, Attacked in Syria

The fallout of conflicting information regarding the alleged strike against a Syrian nuclear facility in September continues. Al Jazeera Channel's website quotes Israeli and Arab sources as saying that the attack was carried out by U.S. warplanes, which used mini-nuclear bombs to destroy the unfinished facility without killing any people.

Israeli Air Force jets only provided cover for the U.S. jets, according to this version of the event.

Previous reports have said that the raid was carried out by the IAF, or that U.S. jets provided cover for the Israeli fighters.
