Syrian Foreign Minister: We Will Retaliate Immediately if Israel Strikes Again
Times of Israel – Syria’s foreign minister laid out a hard line Wednesday, warning that Syria would “retaliate immediately” if Israel strikes Syrian soil again. Earlier this month, Israeli warplanes reportedly twice struck near the Syrian capital, Damascus, targeting purported Iranian missiles intended for Assad’s ally, the Lebanese militia Hezbollah.
“We’ve declared to the world that we will retaliate immediately if Israel attacks again,” Walid al-Moallem said in an interview with the Lebanese TV station Al-Mayadeen. “Any aggression will be met with a response of a similar magnitude.”
