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.
