After Israel targeted Iranian military sites near the airport in Damascus, Syria has responded with threats toward the Jewish state. Ynet News’ Daniel Salami reports that the Syrian ambassador to the United Nations says that his nation can respond in kind, striking Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport:

Syria’s Ambassador the United Nations Bashar Ja’afari threatened Tuesday that Damascus would target Ben Gurion Airport if the UN Security Council does not put an end to the repeated Israeli strikes in the country.

Speaking before the UN Security Council, Ja’afari addressed the attack the Israeli Air Force carried out early Monday on Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Force targets near Damascus, hitting a munition storage sites, a site located in the Damascus International Airport, an Iranian intelligence site and an Iranian military training camp.

“Isn’t time now for the UN Security council to stop the Israeli repeated aggressions on the Syrian Arab republic territories?” Ja’afari said according to Syrian state news agency SANA.

He further wondered if Syria should draw the council’s attention by “practicing its legitimate right of self-defense and responding to the Israeli aggression on Damascus International Airport in the same way on Tel Aviv Airport…”
