Israeli intelligence alleges Syrian nuclear program resumed

In September 2007, Israel launched an air attack against Syria, destroying a facility in Al Kibar that both the Israelis and the Americans claimed was a nuclear military installation. Last month, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed the US and Israeli allegations. The Israelis now claim that the Syrians have resumed their nuclear program. The United Press Agency is reporting that (probably Israeli) intelligence findings were “presented last month to the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna” and “indicated Syria is actively involved in plutonium production”. Additionally, the Israelis claim that the Syrians “renewed a nuclear cooperation accord in October” with North Korea, under which the communist nation “would supply Syria with nuclear materials and research”.
