Report: Syria Airstrike Targeted Chemical Weapons Center

Conflicting reports continued on Wednesday night about an air strike in Syria, what exactly was targeted and who carried out the attack.

While a statement by the Syrian military claimed that the target was “a scientific research center in charge of raising our level of resistance and self-defense,” a Lebanese news website on Wednesday night quoted a Syrian source as saying that the target of the strike was a chemical weapons center.
