In 2011 Syria came under renewed international scrutiny by refusing to dispel suspicions that it had carried out work on a suspected undeclared nuclear facility. The suspicions centred on a facility located at al-Kibar, a remote site in Deir Ez-Zor governorate in eastern Syria. The site was destroyed by an Israeli air strike in September 2007. The Israeli and US governments alleged that Syria had been secretly constructing, with technical assistance from North Korea, a nuclear reactor similar to the reactor that North Korea used to produce plutonium for nuclear explosive devices. The Syrian Government has stated that the building was a disused military facility that had no connection to nuclear activities, and that it had no nuclear cooperation with North Korea.1
