Photographs of an alleged Syrian nuclear facility that was targeted by Israel on September 6 were taken as early as 2003, Channel 10 reported on Saturday.
The fact that the infrastructure itself had been built at least four years ago did not signify that the facility had been used for the same purposes as it was used for directly before the IAF strike, former IAF commander Maj. -Gen. (res.) Eitan Ben Eliyahu told the news channel.
Since the bombing, news media have quoted unidentified US officials as saying that the air strike hit some sort of nuclear facility linked to North Korea, which is now in the process of dismantling its nuclear weapons program.
