In 2007, Syria's news agency reported that President Bashar Assad regime’s was close to completing a nuclear reactor at Al-Kibar, in the east of the country, when it was reportedly destroyed by Israeli jets in September 2007.

 

 

Israel has never admitted to attacking the reactor.

 

Meanwhile, a source with Syria's National Coalition said on Friday that the coalition will meet in Istanbul on March 2 to choose a prime minister to head a provisional government to operate in rebel-held areas of the country.

 

The date was set after a compromise was reached between a bloc in the coalition that includes the powerful Muslim Brotherhood and other members who favor speedy formation of a government, the source told Reuters at the end of a two-day meeting of the coalition in Cairo.
