Syria’s government is accusing Israel of bombing a military scientific research center in the west of Syria that Israeli officials accuse of producing chemical weapons and missiles that could be used to deliver them. Syria’s government said the attack could bring “dangerous repercussions” to the security and stability of the region. The Israeli air strikes came a day after U.N. investigators concluded the Syrian Air Force used the nerve agent sarin in an attack in April that killed at least 83 people in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun. The U.N. said it was one of at least 20 chemical weapons attacks by the Syrian government during the conflict.
