Syria is suspected of harboring a uranium conversion reactor near the town of Marj as Sultan, near Damascus, according to a report by the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung released Wednesday.

The facility is related to the the nuclear reactor project at al Kibar that was bombed by Israel in September 2007, and was reportedly used for processing uranium, according to the report.

The report said the facility's operational status is still unknown, but Syria is suspected of clearing out the buildings before mid-2008 in efforts to disguise previous activities conducted at the site.
