Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi threatened that Syria will respond to any Western military attack. "If we'll be attacked we'll have no choice but to defend ourselves, and this is not a situation who hope for as it would just exact a cost from everyone."
In an interview to Hezbollah affiliated al Manar, the minister added that "the West has no proof the Syria has used chemical weapons. If the US has such proof they should present it." (Roi Kais)
