Following Israel's retaliatory strike on Syrian army targets on Wednesday, Minister of Defense Moshe Ya'alon said that Israel viewed Syrian President Bashar Assad as the person responsible for what happens in his territory.

"If he [Assad] continues to cooperate with terrorists who seek to harm Israel he will continue to pay a heavy price that he will regret," Ya'alon said.

"We will continue to act responsibly in order to preserve the security for the citizens of Israel," the defense minister added.
