Breaking Video : Israel Admits Striking Nuclear Facility in Syria's Deir ez-Zor Province in 2007
The whole operation lasted for four hours, according to the statement.
The operation was deemed a success by the Chief of the General Staff. The nuclear facility was destroyed and an escalation in the region prevented. Only a few years later, ISIS [Islamic State, banned in Russia] captured the Deir ez-Zor region.
One could only imagine how much havoc they could have wreaked with a nuclear facility in their hands,” the statement added.
