Report: Syria claims right to 'surprise retaliation' against Israel

Syria's has the right to a "surprise retaliation" after Israel's airstrike, its ambassador to Lebanon is quoted as saying, and Syria's foreign ministry has summoned the head of the United Nations mission in the Golan Heights over the attack, Syria's state news agency reports.

Ambassador Ali Abdul Karim Ali said Israel's airstrike Wednesday was on a research center, according to the Hezbollah official website Moqawama.

A senior U.S. official on Wednesday, however, said Israeli jet fighters hit a Syrian convoy suspected of moving weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

It was not certain whether the U.S. and Syrian accounts referred to the same incidents.

    Really?? a surprise retaliation? So Syria is not going to alert Israel that is's about to retaliate? Damn those Syrians got it going on. Should Syria attack, Israel's response should not come as a surprise to Syria.
