F-16s 'Fired 8 Missiles, Bunker-Buster at Syria Chemical Site'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 1/31/2013 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 01/31/2013 12:50:04 PM PST by Uncle Miltie

The site allegedly attacked by Israel in Syria manufactured chemical and biological weapons, according to a report in Iraqi newspaper Azzaman that appears in London.

...

It says that the classified installation, which is located just 12 kilometers (7 miles) from the presidential palace, was guarded by a large contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards, many of whom died in the attack.

A diplomatic source interviewed by the newspaper said that the attack took place 48 hours before it was first reported. He said that initial reports regarding a convoy that was attacked were meant to disguise the true target of the attack. However, the newspaper reported, some trucks were also destroyed in the attack.

The diplomatic source said that Israeli F-16 jets carried out two sorties over the installation, firing at least eight guided missiles at it as well as at least one bunker busting bomb. The installation was badly damaged and there were numerous casualties. He said that about 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards were stationed at the installation, as well as several Russian experts.

He added that the operation must also have relied on good intelligence obtained by Israel from Iran.

...

The White House meanwhile warned Syria not to "further destabilize the region" by transferring weaponry to Hizbullah.

It said it fired "eight guided missiles"

They were probably Popeye or Delilah missiles...in which case...they were fired.

“He said that initial reports regarding a convoy that was attacked were meant to disguise the true target of the attack.”

So no convoy was attacked it was a working facility in Syria and earlier this week there was a massive explosion at an Iranian plant that is separate still not a cover story?

Hard to figure out who is doing what over there.

"... was guarded by a large contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards, many of whom died in the attack." Well, cry me a river.

No wonder the camel-humping rag-heads were so pissed off (well, more than they usually are, at any rate). I'm sure that the Israeli response was something on the order of, "Go piss up a rope."

During WWII the 8th air force B17’s fired a lot of bombs at German held territories.

‘fighter jets’ and ‘launched’ not ‘planes’ and ‘fired’.

Addition by subtraction. Show preview before opening on Broadway (Iran).

They are called high capacity assault clips if I am not mistaken.

So the chemical and biological weapons were guarded by troops from one of the most radical anti-American governments on the planet, and our President is doing what???

He’s sending more F-16s and tanks to the allies of crazies.

Don’t forget the $40 million Iranian platform that sunk without explanation.
