A US military raid inside Syria was an act of "criminal and terrorist aggression," Syria's foreign minister said Monday and warned of retaliation if its borders were violated again. If there was a repeat of the weekend raid, "we would defend our territories," Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem told a news conference in London. The US military said it was targeting the network of al-Qaida-linked foreign fighters moving through Syria to help fight in Iraq. Syria said troops in four helicopters attacked a building and killed eight people, including four children. "They know full well that we stand against al-Qaida," al-Moallem said. "They know full well we are trying to tighten our border with Iraq."
