WATCH Israeli Defense Forces’ Destruction of Syrian Nuclear Reactor

Sputnik–According to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), during the night between September 5 and September 6, 2007, four Israeli F-16 jets destroyed a nuclear facility in its last stages of construction in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province, 280 miles north-east of Damascus.

The IDF said that this operation had helped them eliminate a nuclear threat, not only to Israel, but to the entire region as a few years later, the Daesh* terrorist group captured most of Deir ez-Zor Governorate and the consequence of using this facility could have been unpredictable.

Footage has been released, showing the airstrikes conducted by the Israeli Air Force.
