Syria, Iran, Hezbullah and Russia all threaten Israel

Back in the real world (outside the surreality of the 'human rights council'), Syria and Iran have threatened to retaliate against 'Tel Aviv' (which they refer to as our capital), while Hezbullah and Russia have condemned what they have all decided to call an Israeli strike on a 'military research facility' in Syria.
Syria's ambassador to Lebanon said on Thursday that Damascus had the option of a "surprise decision" to respond to what it said was an Israeli air strike on a research center on the outskirts of the Syrian capital on Wednesday.
Syria could take "a surprise decision to respond to the aggression of the Israeli warplanes," Ali Abdul Karim Ali was quoted as telling a Hezbollah-run news website.
"Syria is engaged in defending its sovereignty and its land," he added, without spelling out what the response might entail. Syria and Israel have fought several wars and in 2007 Israeli jets bombed a suspected Syrian nuclear site, without retaliation.
In the wake of reported Israeli air strike on a Syrian weapons center, Iran also issued a threat to Israel on Thursday.
The Iranian regime's English language mouthpiece, Press TV, quoted a deputy foreign minister as saying that the "strike on Syria will have serious consequences for Tel Aviv." The official did not elaborate.


Meanwhile, Lebanon's militant group Hezbollah condemned on Thursday an Israeli attack which it said targeted a Syrian research center, saying it was an attempt to thwart Arab military capabilities and pledging to stand by its ally President Bashar Assad.
"Hezbollah strongly condemns this new Zionist aggression on Syria,” the group said in a statement, calling for "wide-scale condemnation from the international community," the group said in a statement.

Russia said on Thursday it was very concerned about reports of an Israeli air attack deep inside Syria near Damascus and that any such action, if confirmed, would amount to unacceptable military interference in the war-ravaged country.
"If this information is confirmed, then we are dealing with unprovoked attacks on targets on the territory of a sovereign country, which blatantly violates the UN Charter and is unacceptable, no matter the motives to justify it," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
I don't see anything coming from any of these threats... except maybe a UN condemnation. But if the IAF ever admits to this, I would love to see the surveillance video (I'm sure one was made).

Just now on Israel CH2 TV, they said that the claim of Israel hitting a facility in Damascus is false and that we did indeed strike a convoy of sophisticated weapons destined for babysitting by Hizballah.

As for why the Syrians would lie, the correspondent said what I commented earlier: Russia will be very pissed off at Syria for transferring these systems to Hizballah and the last thing Syria needs now is an angry arms supplier.
