Now this will be interesting... there must have been something important there for a number of reasons:
1) Something critical was required for the Israelis to bother risking an attack in the first place... this could have sparked off something much
bigger, so the benefits of destroying this facility must have outweighed the risks of undertaking the raid.
2) Due to the secrecy surrounding the entire operation. According to the Sunday Times, the Israelis sent in a team of commandos prior to the raid to
scout the site to convince the US to give their blessing - see this
. Why risk commandos, and why the emphasis on US support, if it was only a minor facility?
3) Due to the speed in which the Syrians removed the remnants of the site after the attack. Why clean it up so quickly if it wasn't very
In addition, Syria has recently called up reservists
. Something is clearly going on in
the Middle East, but none of the nations involved feel that revealing exactly what is to their advantage. Let's face it, if the site that the
Israelis bombed didn't contain something the Syrians wanted to keep quiet they'd be shouting and screaming about it... and if Israel hadn't got
something else planned, they might similarly be more open about what they did and why they did it.
