Wikileaks: Israel Attacked Syrian Nuke Site


Israel was the country that destroyed the a nuclear site apparently built with the help of North Korea in northeastern Syria in 2007, according to a document written in 2008 by then secretary of state Condoleezza Rice of the United States. The document is among Wikileaks documents published Friday morning by the Yediot Acharonot daily.

Dr. Rice's document details Israel's decision to attack and US cooperation, in addition to describing the operation. It expresses concern that Syria would declare war over the incident and describes how the Damascus government evacuated the site, got rid of evidence as to what had been at the site and put up a new building.
