Site of supposed Israeli attack in Syria claims it learned of strike from the news

The Arab Center for the Studies of Arid Zones and Dry Lands (ACSAD) in Syria called the reports of an Israeli attack on its facility in Dir a-Zour completely "made-up" and claimed that it only learned of the purported attack after seeing satellite images of its property and reading about the attack in the news.


In an announcement, the center wrote that it was shocked to hear of the "fabricated lies of the Zionist media" that its facilities were the target of a supposed Israeli raid. The center added that it would be happy to organize a tour of its property for the international press.


Last weekend, in a Ynet special report, Ron Ben-Yishai took pictures and interviewed eyewitnesses living in the small town of Dir A-Zour located next to the research center.


One of the interviewees claimed to have heard sonic booms during the alleged Israeli attack, but said he did not hear explosions on the ground.
Everything that has been reported about this attack is erroneous and is part of an Israeli campaign of psychological warfare that will not succeed in misleading Syria," the vice president said at a press conference in Damascus with his Iraqi counterpart Adel Abdul-Mahdi Saturday.



According to Al-Shara, this attack was meant to raise the morale of the Israeli army after it failed in its attempt to destroy Hizbullah in the Second Lebanon War.

" Syrian President Bashar Assad has said Israel bombed an "unused military building" in the Sept. 6 raid. "

According to CNN Report: Israeli airstrike targeted Syrian nuclear reactor

Well, if the Arab Center for the Studies of Arid Zones and Dry Lands (ACSAD) in Syria called the reports of an Israeli attack on its facility in Dir a-Zour completely "made-up", then perhaps the Syrian President must be totally wrong that Israel bombed anything.

(I watched and heard the Syrian President admit, in clear English, in a BBC interview, that an empty military facility was bombed by Israeli jets.)

Syrian presstitutes?
