Israel's attack on Syria state terrorism: Turkish PM

Moscow, Feb 4 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused Israel of waging "state terrorism" following the country's recent air strike on Syria.

"As I say time and again, Israel has a mentality of waging state terrorism. Right now, there is no telling what it might do and where it might do it," Al Jazeera quoted Erdogan as saying.

Israel's outgoing defence minister Ehud Barak confirmed Sunday the airstrike on Syria at a meeting of the world's top diplomats in Munich.

He said the incident was proof that when "we say something, we mean it".

Erdogan said: "Those who have been treating Israel like a spoilt child should expect anything from them, at any time."

The Israeli air strike hit the Jamraya military research centre northwest of the capital Damascus. Syrian state TV said two people were killed and five others injured in the air strike.

The Syrian foreign ministry has sent a letter to the UN Security Council, asking the organisation to condemn the attack.
