Syria accuses Israel of striking research centre

Thursday, 31 January 2013 - 8:14


Syria accused Israel of staging an air raid on a military research centre, a day after a peace envoy issued a fresh warning of the 22-month conflict spilling over into neighbouring states.


The strike came as an opposition chief laid down conditions for talks with President Bashar al-Assad's regime, and as world outrage at a massacre piled pressure on all parties to halt their bloodletting.


UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned of a "catastrophic" situation in the war-torn country at a conference in Kuwait where international donors pledged more than the targeted 1.5 billion dollars in aid for stricken Syrians.
