(AP) Syria and Iran have threatened to retaliate for an Israeli air raid near the capital Damascus.


Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul-Karim Ali says Damascus has the option and the surprise to retaliate. He said he cannot predict when the retaliation will be, saying it is up to relevant authorities to prepare for it.


In Iran, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Thursday as saying the raid on Syria will have significant implications for the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.


U.S. officials said Israel launched a rare airstrike inside Syria on Wednesday, targeting a convoy believed to contain anti-aircraft weapons bound for Hezbollah. The Syrian military denied the existence of any such shipment and said a scientific research facility outside Damascus was hit.
