Syria and Iran today threatened to retaliate after Israel launched an air strike near Damascus.
Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon, Ali Abdul-Karim Ali, says Damascus has 'the option and the surprise to retaliate'.
He said he cannot predict when the retaliation will be, saying it is up to relevant authorities to prepare for it.
In Iran, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian today as saying the raid on Syria will have significant implications for the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.
U.S. officials said Israel launched a rare airstrike inside Syria yesterday, targeting a convoy believed to contain anti-aircraft weapons bound for Hezbollah.
