Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al Mekdad told CNN on Sunday that Israel's attack on the nation's military research facility in Damascus was a "declaration of war."
He added that the attack represented an alliance between Islamic terrorists and Israel, and Syria would retaliate against Israel in its own time.
Syria accused Israel of firing rockets into Jamraya, striking the research center, Syrian state-run TV reported, according to CNN. The report claimed that the attack on the center aided rebels.
Israeli authorities would not confirm or deny the claim that Israel was behind the attack.
"We do not comment on these reports at all," an Israeli military spokesperson said, according to CNN.
