Syria and Iran threaten retaliation against Israel

Syria and Iran have threatened to retaliate for an Israeli air raid near the capital Damascus.

 

Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul-Karim Ali said Damascus has "the option and the surprise to retaliate." In Iran, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday as saying the raid on Syria will have significant implications for the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.
