Report Claims: Israeli Special Ops. in Syria

Israel has sent special operations forces into Syria to look for the Assad regime’s chemical and biological weapons, the Sunday Times reports. According to the report, the troops’ work is part of a secret plan to keep Syria from developing or using unconventional weapons.

An Israeli source quoted by the paper said Israel had known the location of Assad’s chemical and biological weapons for years, but that the weapons appear to have been moved in recent days.
