The Zionist regime’s airstrike on Syrian soil have opened the door "to all possibilities" and made the situation in the region more dangerous, Syria's government has said.

"The government of the Syrian Arab Republic confirms that this aggression opens the door wide to all possibilities," the cabinet said in a statement read at a news conference by Information Minister Omran al-Zohbi on Sunday.


"The international community should know that the complex situation in the region has become more dangerous after this aggression," the statement added.


Syria "has not just a right but a duty to protect the homeland and the state and the people from any attack, whether internal or external, by all ways and means and capabilities available," it said.


The comments came after the cabinet held an emergency meeting to discuss at least three Israeli airstrikes on Syrian soil.


In letters to the United Nations Security Council, the foreign ministry said Israel was coordinating with terrorist groups including the Al-Nusra Front that has pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda.


The Zionist regime attacked a research center in the suburbs of the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Sunday following heavy losses of al-Qaeda-affiliated groups at the hands of the Syrian army.


Iran condemned the attack on Syria and called on regional leaders to wisely stand against regime’s attempts to threaten security of the region.
