Israel Bombed Syrian Chemical Site

As reports of chemical weapons usage in Syria spread, the Free Syrian Army says Israeli jets bombed a chemical weapons facility near Damascus early Saturday morning. According to the Hebrew paper Maariv, Syrian Army air defense fired at the jets, which also flew over President Bashar al-Assad's palace, but were unsuccessful. The rebels posted a video of smoke billowing from the chemical weapons headquarters, but government officials of neither side have responded to reports.
