Jan. 31, 2013

Syrian ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul-Karim said on Thursday that his country would find the "right time" to retaliate against Israel for allegedly carrying out airstrikes on a military research facility.

"Syria, who has been fighting for its sovereignty, will retaliate at the right time," Abdul-Karim was quoted as saying by Lebanon's al-Manar Television, the mouthpiece for the Shiite militant group Hezbollah.
