“The Zionist (Israeli) aggression and arrogant international forces have tried to take revenge by attacking the resisting Syrian people,” Jalili added, referring to Wednesday’s Israeli air strikes.
Jalili met with Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi this morning and was due to meet President Bashar al-Assad and Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem.
