Vienna - A remote desert site in Syria that was bombed by Israeli planes in September 2007 was "very likely" a nuclear reactor, the UN atomic watchdog said on Tuesday.

"Based on all the information available to the agency and its technical evaluation of that information, the agency assesses that it is very likely that the building destroyed at the Dair Alzour site was a nuclear reactor which should have been declared to the agency," the International Atomic Energy Agency said in a new restricted report, a copy of which was obtained by AFP.

It is the first time that the IAEA has officially made such an assessment since it began investigating the allegations back in 2008.

    Thank you Israel. Syria will soon fall... imagine they used a BOMB on their own people. Israel destroyed the site before the world knew what was going on... again... and this time saved the lives of thousands of Syrian civilians.
