The Syrian deputy foreign minister says the Tel Aviv regime will ‘suffer again’ for its recent military aggression on Syria.
On Sunday, Syria said the Israeli regime had carried out an airstrike targeting a research center in a suburb of Damascus, following heavy losses of al - Qaeda - affiliated groups at the hands of the Syrian army. According to Syrian media reports, Israeli rockets struck the Jamraya research center. In an exclusive interview with the CNN on Sunday, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al - Miqdad said, “When they attack, this is a declaration of war. This is not something that is(new). ”
“We dealt with this on several occasions, and we retaliated the way we wanted, and the retaliation was always painful to Israel, and they will suffer again, ” the Syrian deputy foreign minister stated.
Syria’s Foreign Ministry has sent letters to the United Nations and its Security Council stating that Israel’s aggression shows the links between Tel Aviv and terrorist groups operating in Syria including the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front. Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoabi told reporters in Damascus on Sunday that Syria had the right and the duty to defend its people by all available means and it would not give in to Israeli acts of aggression. The Israeli attacks on Syria have made the Middle East more dangerous, the Syrian information minister said. The Sunday Israeli aggression was Tel Aviv’s second strike on Syria in three days. The Jamraya facility was also targeted in an Israeli airstrike in January. The Syrian government says the chaos that erupted in the country over two years ago is being orchestrated from outside. The anti-Syria countries including Turkey and several Arab states in the region have taken a silent stance toward Tel Aviv’s acts of aggression against Syria.
