Tel Aviv (dpa) - After years of secrecy, the Israeli army confirmed on Wednesday it had conducted a 2007 military strike on what was believed to be Syrian nuclear reactor.

The Israeli army said that four F16 jets bombed a Syrian nuclear facility in Deir al-Zour, 450 kilometres north of Damascus, in a four hour stealth operation overnight on September 5 to 6, 2007.

The attack, dubbed "Out of the Box" by military command, was long believed to have occurred but was never officially confirmed by Israel.

"The message from the attack on the nuclear reactor in 2007 is that the State of Israel will not allow the establishment of capabilities that threaten Israel‘s existence," said Israeli army chief of staff Gadi Eizenkot.

"This was our message in 2007, this remains our message today and will continue to be our message in the near and distant future," he added.

It is unclear why the army chose to disclose the information now. Some speculate it could be a warning to Iran or be timed to coincide with the release of a memoir of Ehud Olmert, who served as prime minister during the strike.

According to the Israeli army, the reactor was months away from being operational, prompting the army to strike and destroy the facility.
