Syria has stationed missile batteries aimed at Israel in the aftermath of alleged Israeli air strikes in the country, the website of Syria's Al Mayadeen TV, considered close to the regime of President Bahsar Assad, quoted a top official as saying on Sunday.

The Syrian government meeting called as a result of the alleged Israeli strikes ended Sunday afternoon, with the Syrian Information Minister Omran Zoabi saying that Israeli air strikes on the outskirts of Damascus "open the door to all possibilities."
