Syria rebuilds at bombing site


Syria is rebuilding a site targeted by Israel in a mysterious bombing run last year.

Saturday’s New York Times published satellite photographs showing a new building at a secret site in north Syria that was destroyed Sept. 6 by Israeli warplanes.

International analysts have speculated that Israel destroyed a nascent nuclear reactor, though this was denied by Damascus. Jerusalem and Washington had no comment.

After the bombing, Syrian authorities flattened the strike area in a move that stirred suspicions of a cover-up. The new building could scotch any future efforts by foreign nuclear inspectors to collect evidence at the site.
