Damascus warns Israel of 'more surprises' in Syria

Source: Reuters

DAMASCUS/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel will face “more surprises” should it again attack Syrian territory, Damascus said on Tuesday, after Syria’s air defenses shot down an advanced Israeli warplane during the fiercest flare-up between the old foes in 36 years.

The F-16 jet was hit over northern Israel on Saturday as it returned from a raid on a Syrian position blamed for launching an Iranian-made drone across the border. Iran is supporting President Bashar al-Assad in Syria’s near seven-year civil war.

“Have full confidence the aggressor will be greatly surprised, because it thought this war - this war of attrition Syria has been exposed to for years - had made it incapable of confronting attacks,” Assistant Foreign Minister Ayman Sussan said.

“God willing, they will see more surprises whenever they try to attack Syria,” Sussan said during a Damascus news conference.

1. This conflict has been going on for quite sometime which has

displaced millions of Syrians. Many have escaped to other countries, much more are stuck in the hell. Russia backs the dictator who don't give a damn about the citizens of Syria. I don't know what the USA is doing over there now.

There are so many hot spots in the world that can open up into a full major war and the USA is in the middle of those. I truly with the strongest dislike, dislike this present administration, the party in control and the asshole in the WH.
