Saeed Khan: Tensions growing between Israel and Syria


A series of explosions rocked Damascus last Sunday morning, re-igniting Syrian claims that Israel has launched attacks inside the country. While a Syrian official called the explosions "a declaration of war" by Israel, the Israeli government has not taken responsibility for the attacks. Craig Fahle spoke with Saeed Khan, lecturer in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Wayne State University, about the growing tensions between Syria and Israel and what the attacks could mean for Syria's on-going civil war.
