Leaving fire, terror, death and pestilence in their wake; ok maybe not pestilence, but you get what I mean.
Soldiers from an elite Israeli unit captured nuclear material originating in North Korea from a secret Syrian military installation before IAF jets bombed it, a report by Britain's Sunday Times wrote Saturday night, quoting "informed sources in Washington and Jerusalem." According to the sources quoted by the report, the alleged IAF attack was sanctioned by the US on September 6, after the Americans were given proof that the material was indeed nuclear related.By the way Syria, that attack happened, like last week... don't you think it's a bit late to get all worked up over it & scrambling jets now...
The sources confirmed that the materials were tested after they were taken from Syria and were found to be of North Korean origin, which raised concerns that Syria may have been trying to come into possession of nuclear arms. The report said that the commandos, from the legendary General Staff's Reconnaissance Unit (Sayeret Matkal), may have been disguised in Syrian army uniforms. It also stated that Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who used to head the unit, personally oversaw the operation. JPost.
IAF fighter jets were alerted to the northern border with Syria on Saturday after a Syrian military jet, being tracked by Israel, disappeared from military radar systems. A short time later, the IAF discovered that the Syrian jet had crashed in Syrian territory. The IAF jets returned to their bases and the level of alert was lowered. JPost.Maybe it was best the response was a week or two late, at least then you can say it was Allah's will when your jet came crashing down, looks much better than saying your fancy jet was brought down by a bunch of apes and pigs, right?
