Israeli jets have reportedly targeted a suspected chemical weapons factory in western Syria.
The Syrian National Army said four IAF warplanes hit a military site in Hama province, near Masyaf, in the early hours of Thursday morning, killing two soldiers and causing massive damage.
It is believed the site was linked to the sarin gas attack in April, which UN investigators said was the work of the Syrian government.
The UN confirmed the chemical attacks in Khan Sheikhoun, which resulted in the deaths of dozens of civilians and prompted a US missile attack, were perpetrated by Assad regime forces.
Israel refused to comment on the reports but has indicated in the past that it has taken military action against Hezbollah and other targets inside Syria - and will continue to do so.

Did Clinton pick out the site? How are aspirin sales going in Mid East?
It’s a mystery that Assad would continue to process CW material. It’s also a mystery that Russia’s defenses were not triggered.
This is the factory being built by IRAN...
Syrian opposition media named Israel as responsible for air strikes over Syria before dawn Thursday, Sept. 7 - in particular the attack which targeted the Scientific Studies Researchers Center, or Centre D’Etudes et de Recherches Scientifiques (CERS), at Masyaf, 38km west of Hama in central Syria.
This facility has overseen the governments chemical warfare and missile programs since the 1970s. Casualties were reported in this attack. The reports were accompanied by photos showing high flames from an explosion, although there were no signs that it took place at the Masyaf plant.
“On Aug. 24, the German Algemeiner cited a confidential UN report confirming that two North Korean shipments were intercepted in the past six months on their way to Syria, with reason to believe that their cargo was part of a Korea Mining Developing Trading Corp. (KOMID) contract with Syria.
KOMID is Pyongyangs primary exporter of prohibited chemical, missile engines and conventional arms. It was blacklisted by the UN Security Council in 2009 along with its two representatives in Syria.”
It was a 20 year anniversary celebration:
A major precedent was exposed exactly a decade ago by an earlier Israeli attack, which destroyed a Syrian nuclear plant built by North Korea on Sept. 7, 2007.
That plant, hit while still under destruction, was destined to produce plutonium for the nuclear programs of North Korea and Iran.
Sorry.. correction 10 year anniversary celebration...
Also, per the Jerusalem Post; this may have been a factory scheduled to be taken over by Hezbollah in the future:
Perhaps a bit more to the story than meets the eye.

Where’s the proof?
Did the IAF forget to CC you on the intel? Damn them!
It must be in the Russian State Media we often read here. Now, that’s trustworthy.
