Chemical Weapons facility destroyed in Syria.

According to unconfirmed reports on social media the Israeli military has reportedly struck a SSRC chemical weapons research center near Masyaf, in Syria.

Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC) is responsible for the development of chemical weapons for the Assad regime.

According to UN war crimes investigators Syrian forces have used chemical weapons more than two dozen times during the country’s civil war.  Last April  Assad's Government forces dropped Sarin on the town of Khan Sheikhoun, in Idlib province, killing more than 80 civilians.

Two North Korean shipments to Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC) were intercepted in the past six months, according to a UN report on North Korea sanctions violations.

The destruction of the chemical plant has the potential to save thousands of Syrian lives.

Amos Yadlin, the director the Institute for National Security Studies, justified the attack on the site, calling it a clear and overdue moral statement.


“The reported attack overnight is unusual. This is a military-scientific Syrian site in which they produce, among other things, precision missiles, some of which will be significant in the next military campaign,” .

“The factory that was attacked also manufactures chemical weapons and explosives barrels that have killed thousands of Syrian civilians. If it was an Israeli attack, it is finally an Israeli moral statement about the massacre in Syria.”
