Syria slams alleged Israeli strikes, threatens to respond

Syria’s foreign ministry denounces Israel’s alleged overnight strikes on Hezbollah-linked targets, calling them “a new aggression as part of its repeated aggression against the sovereignty of the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.”

According to state news agency SANA, a ministry official is claiming the strikes came after successful reconciliation efforts in the Daraa region and are “a desperate attempt by the Israeli occupation entity to support its tools and agents from the defeated terrorist groups.”

Damascus “affirms Syria’s right and its ability to respond to these attacks and curb the aggressive tendency of the occupation authorities,” the report says.
