Tensions are being raised between Israel and Syria.

Israel is increasing security along the border.

Syria says that Israel attacked a military research facility near Damascus.

A Syrian official says that they will retaliate against Israel in its own way. The Israelis have neither confirmed nor denied that it was them.

Israel has said in the past it would do whatever is necessary to prevent the Syrian regime from handing over chemical weapons to Hezbollah, other terrorist groups, and militants in Lebanon.
