Mekdad: ‘Israel” plays with fire and exposes the region to grave dangers
In response to the Israeli attacks, The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, Faisal al-Mekdad, stressed that the Israeli occupation entity is “playing with fire,” exposing the security and military situation in the region to disasters.
Mekdad said in a tweet published on the Ministry’s Twitter website, “Syria will not remain silent regarding the repeated Israeli attacks, and the Israelis will pay the price sooner or later.”
Mekdad underlined that Syria has withstood and will keep resisting, and it will not abandon its stances.
He went on to say that the U.S and Western states should hold responsibility for encouraging Israel to increase its aggressions and threaten peace and security in the region and the world.
