Syria’s army said Israeli jets had targeted a military research centre north-west of Damascus on Wednesday.

It denied reports that lorries carrying weapons bound for Lebanon were hit.

Russia has steadfastly refused to denounce Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during the 22-month conflict that has killed more than 60,000 people.

    We all know that Iran wants to destroy Israel, but what business is it of theirs what happens in Syria? Sounds like Syria and Iran want to use this as an excuse to launch an out of proportion attack Israel. Of course the great O will probably sit by and let it all happen and come up with the excuse that we don’t have any business protecting our ally.
