Syrian FM: Israel 'Playing with Fire' after Overnight Airstrikes
Alleged Israeli airstrikes targeted the international airport in Aleppo, in northern Syria, as well as sites near Damascus on Wednesday evening, August 31.
Syria's foreign minister said on Thursday that Israel was "playing with fire", following the alleged Israeli strikes the previous evening.
The strikes resulted in material damage only, according to Syrian media which said Syria's air defenses shot down a number of Israeli missiles around the capital.
There was no immediate comment from Israeli officials. In comments reported by the same media outlet on Thursday, September 1, Syria's top diplomat Faisal al-Meqdad said Israel was threatening regional security.
"Israel is playing with fire and is putting the regional military and security situations at risk of an explosion," the agency reported him saying. "Syria will not remain silent regarding the repeated Israeli attacks and the Israelis will pay the price sooner or later."(JPost / VFI News)
