The Syrian Arab Army has also promised there will be retaliation for the acts of aggression and said that there will be repercussions for Israel for the “flagrant attack” on the military base, state TV reported, citing a Syrian army command spokesman. It also linked the alleged strike to Israel’s “support of terrorist groups.”

Tensions have been building up between Syria and Israel the last couple months.
This is the second time in two months that Israel has attacked Syria. On Dec. 7, SANA reported that “several surface-to-surface missiles” were launched by the Israeli Defense Forces from Golan Heights.
“At 3 a.m., the Israeli enemy fired several surface-to-surface missiles from inside occupied territory,” SANA said.
