Syria: Israel strike 'opens door to all possibilities'

DAMASCUS (AFP) -- Israeli strikes on Syrian military sites have opened the door "to all possibilities" and made the situation in the region "more dangerous," Syria's government said on Sunday.

"The government of the Syrian Arab Republic confirms that this aggression opens the door wide to all possibilities," the cabinet said in a statement read at a news conference by Information Minister Omran al-Zohbi.

"The international community should know that the complex situation in the region has become more dangerous after this aggression," the statement added.

Syria "has not just a right but a duty to protect the homeland and the state and the people from any attack, whether internal or external, by all ways and means and capabilities available," it said.

The comments came after the cabinet held an emergency meeting to discuss what the foreign ministry described as at least three Israeli strikes on Syrian military sites overnight.

In letters to the United Nations Security Council, the foreign ministry accused Israel of coordinating with "terrorist groups" including the Al-Nusra Front rebel group that has pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda.

A senior Israeli source said the attacks early on Sunday hit Iranian weapons destined for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which is allied with the Syrian regime.
