The alleged Syrian nuclear facility in Deir al-Zor was linked to three other facilities in the country, London-based Al-Hayat reported quoting excerpts from an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report released Sunday.

The report did not give details on the facilities nor where they are located.

It was also claimed in the report that Syrian authorities' excuse to import large amounts of equipment meant for "nuclear activities" between 2002 and 2006 was that the equipment was to be used for "civil purposes."
