Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 2 / Trend A.Taghiyeva /
Turkey will not tolerate and silently watch Israeli attacks on any Muslim country, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Saturday, Zaman newspaper reported.
Minister criticized the inaction of Syrian authorities in connection with Israeli attacks on the country's territory.
"The Syrian regime that bombs and fires upon its civilians over the period of 22 months, for some reason does not respond to an Israeli attack on Syria. Maybe, there is some secret agreement between Israel and the Assad regime?" Davutoglu said.
The minister said that President Assad is using Israeli attack to present himself as "a victim" and receive help from Muslim countries.
This week Israeli aircraft attacked a military research center near Damascus. Two people died and five were wounded; extensive damage was caused to the building.
According to the command of the Syrian army, earlier this center was attacked by armed opposition militants several times.
Western media reported that Israeli aircraft bombed a military convoy carrying arms that were supposedly destined for Hezbollah.
