So was the explosion the result of an Israeli strike?

I thought it was just Syrians being incompetent dumb shits.

"In September 2004, Israel contracted to buy from the U.S. 500 one-ton BLU-109 "bunker buster" bombs capable of penetrating 30 feet of earth or concrete, capable of reaching the Iranian underground facilities at Natanz."

500 - 1 = 499.

Next!

Nope, the explosion was in the later part of July. It was possibly this blast that brought this site to the top of the list for Israel. Then when the North Korean ship unloaded “concrete” at a Syrian port that was then trucked to this site that the order was given to take it out. Portland cement is composed mostly of silicates and the last time I looked, Syria is full of silicates (sand) Google earth shows lots of what looks like surface mining that produces an almost white surface color around these mines.

Your second point is much more the case of reality.

Not an unreasonable assumption; much precedent.
