Syria have previously warned of a surprise response to the attack by the Israeli air force. yet he reponded to the question "Why does Syria not respond?" by saying "It's the Israeli enemy which responded.. When the Israeli enemy saw that its tools were being pursued, and they
did not achieve their results, it intervened,".

the General said, that the Syrian air defense have been the target of many attacks lately.. the positions of these anti-aircraft complexes have been shifted to protect them from ground fire. these same gaps have been exploited in the latest attack, which suggests that the terrorists have relayed the position of these units and worked in coordination to hit the research center.
