Israeli media was abuzz after a Mossad official confirmed to the New York Times that Israel was responsible for the assassination of a Syrian chemical weapons and rocket expert on Saturday. Dr. Aziz Asbar was “bent on amassing an arsenal of precision-guided missiles that could be launched with pinpoint accuracy against Israeli cities hundreds of miles away”
The Israelis believed that Mr. Asbar led the secret unit known as Sector 4 at the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center. He was said to have free access to the presidential palace in Damascus and had been collaborating with Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, commander of Iran’s Quds Force, and other Iranians to begin production of precision-guided missiles in Syria by retrofitting heavy Syrian SM600 Tishreen rockets.
The average lifespan of Arab scientists bent on developing weapons to destroy Israel is shorter than a Mayfly’s. Life for said boffins is literally a blast. You can work out the energy produced in the latest car bomb by using Einstein’s well-known theory.
