Syria makes the very obvious and correct claim that this attack was done in coordination with NATO's Islamist Army
"The flagrant Israeli attack on armed forces sites in Syria underlines the co-ordination between 'Israel' [and] terrorist groups," the Syrian foreign ministry statement said."The Israeli attack led to the fall of a number of martyrs and wounded from the ranks of Syrian citizens, and led to widespread destruction in these sites and in the civilian districts near to them."
Several explosions hit al-Hameh area in Damascus countryside on Sunday.
Initial information indicated that the explosions took place in Jamraya and targeted the Scientific Research Center there causing casualties.
The information also indicated that these explosions have been caused by Israeli rocket attacks.
The new Israeli aggression is a clear attempt to raise the gunmen morale after the painful blows they received at the hands of our valiant army in several places and after the achievements which were realized on the ground by our armed forces to restore security and stability to Syria.
The new Israeli aggression shows the direct involvement of the Zionist entity
in the conspiracy against Syria and the relationship that links the armed terrorist groups with the Israeli hostile schemes backed by the Western, regional and some Gulf states.
Earlier, the Jamraya site was the target of an Israeli strike on January 30 .
UPDATE: regarding timing of attack
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has confirmed that Kerry had received the invitation and "expects to make use of it soon" Lavrov told Interfax news agency aboard the flight back to Moscow from Munich, where he had attended an international security conference Lavrov noted that problems would always exist between large countries like Russia and America. "They should be dealt with on the basis of equality and respect for each other's interests, and one should avoid artificially creating problems." His comments came as some of the U.S. recent moves, in his words, "have been seen as quite exacerbated in our public opinion. " "We hope that there won't be any more reason for that," said the minister.

The Canadian government is open to discussing a military campaign against the Syrian regime
Obviously we’re talking with our allies,” Mr. Baird said on CTV’s Question Period when asked if Canada supported discussions under way among Canada’s allies about a campaign. He said evidence from the United States and Israel suggested chemical weapons have been used in Syria. While he said Canada “can’t validate specifically” who has used them, “we strongly suspect it’s the regime.
In other words, we don't know if, when or even who used chemical weapons but we're going to blame the government and start killing Syrians to save them
John Baird Lies
As the international community discusses a campaign against Syria in support of the rebels, Israel this weekend launched its air strikes against targets in Syria.
This looks to me as if NATO is going to circumvent the UN....
The Cabinet held an extraodiinary session on Sunday chaired by Premier Dr. Wael al-Halqi, in which it denounced the criminal Israeli aggression against sites in Syria, affirming that this blatant aggression is violation of Syrian airspace, territories and sovereignty and a flagrant attack on the Syrian people's properties and resources.The Cabinet said that the aggression was carried out in coordination with the terrorist groups which answer to foreign sides and was timed with an escalation of their desperate terrorist operations in various area in a bid to raise their morale and delay their approaching defeat, as these groups are breathing their last breaths.
The Cabinet underlined the strong link between the terrorist groups – such as the Takfiri groups and Jabhet al-Nusra – and Israel.
"The Syrian government stresses that this aggression opens the door wide for all the possibilities, especially that it undoubtedly shows the scale of the organic link between the constituents of the war on Syria, along with their Takfiri terrorist tools, and the Zionism," al-Zoubi stressed.
The statement pointed out that that the Syrian government has long affirmed this link in terms of the aim, tools and means between the Takfiri thinking and the Zionism and the terrorism gangs and Jabhat al-Nusra, which is an offshoot of al-Qaeda in Syria.
It noted that Syria has offered lots of evidence and facts proving this link, the latest was this new aggression "which came at a time when our armed forces, backed by our people, are making more achievements in combating terrorism and the terrorists who come from various countries of the world and are funded by the entities of Arab disgrace."
