Israel used depleted uranium in airstrike on Syria: Report

A senior Syrian official says Israel has used depleted uranium in its recent airstrike against the Jamraya Research Center in the outskirts of Damascus.


The official, who was present near the attack site on Sunday morning, told Russia Today that Israel used "a new type of weapon" during the airstrike.

“When the explosion happened, it felt like an earthquake,” the official, asked not to be named, added.

“Then a giant golden mushroom of fire appeared. This tells us that Israel used depleted uranium shells,” the Syrian official said.

“Several civilian factories and buildings were destroyed. The target was just an ordinary weapons warehouse. The bombing is an ultimatum to us,” he added.

The Syrian official also refuted the claims by Western intelligence sources that the airstrike targeted transfers of weapons from the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah to Syria.

Deplete uranium does not explode. It's heavy and penetrates armor well.

Makes sense. The US sold Israel 100 GBU 28 bunker-buster bombs, which indeed have a DU core. Most people assume they were meant for Iran's nuclear sites, but using one against a site close to Damascus is a great way of sending a warning to Iran.

So yeah, a 5,000-pound DU bomb hitting a weapons storage building will generate a pretty nice bang - hence the slightly "nuclear" look about the blast.

DU burns violently when it's exposed to air. It's used in bunker-busters to make sure anything inside the building (ammo, fuel, etc) is ignited.

Good. Next they can use active uranium in the trigger of a hydrogen bomb if Assad is determined to retaliate.

Got it. It burns when heated (with O2), like magnesium, the impact would certainly generate a lot of heat.

Stand corrected.
