"This is a very dangerous provocation little short of wantonly violating the sovereignty of Syria and seriously harassing the regional peace and security," a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

 

"The Democratic People's Republic of Korea strongly denounces the above-said intrusion and extends full support and solidarity to the Syrian people in their just cause to defend the national security and the regional peace."

 

Earlier on Tuesday CNN reported that the incident was actually an attack on Iranian weapons transferred to Syria.

 

According to the report, which was based mainly on sources in the American government, the incident involved an aerial operation that also included Israeli ground forces that were meant to mark targets or inspect the damage caused by the attack.

 

Hours before CNN report was broadcast, Syria appealed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council, and warned Israel of "the consequences of this outrageous aggression".
