Amid reports in the American media that the alleged Israeli raid into Syria 10 days ago targeted a North Korean-Syrian nuclear facility, John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the UN, told The Jerusalem Post over the weekend that “simple logic” suggested North Korea and Iran could have outsourced nuclear development “to a country that is not under suspicion” – namely Syria. Tellingly, he added: “Why would North Korea protest an Israeli strike on Syria?”
Bolton suggested that Syria, which he said has long sought a range of weapons of mass destruction, might have agreed to provide “facilities for uranium enrichment” on its territory for two allied countries which are being closely watched for nuclear development.
Bolton spoke as American newspapers reported that the alleged IAF raid, over which Israel has maintained official silence, was aimed at a facility in northern Syria close to the Turkish border, and that the strike may have been linked to the recent arrival of a shipment from North Korea, labeled as cement, but believed by Israel to contain nuclear equipment.
