Syria responded angrily to the overnight air strikes on military targets that it accused Israel of carrying out, warning that the attack “opens the door to all possibilities.”
Israel has not claimed responsibility, but moved anti-missile batteries to the north and shut down the air space to civilian flights as tensions rise.
“We will not accept to be humiliated,” Syrian information minister Omran al-Zoubi said at an afternoon press conference. “We are all in a state of anger. We are abused by this attack.”
Israel hasn’t confirmed or denied the series of strikes early today morning, believed to be the second set of strikes in 48 hours. On Friday, Israel hit what unidentified officials told The Associated Press was a shipment of ground-to-ground missiles bound for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
