Syria has protested angrily to both the US and Iraq after what it said was a US helicopter raid inside its territory that killed eight civilians.
Syria summoned US and Iraqi envoys to condemn the "aggressive act". Iraq said the area targeted was used by militants to launch cross-border attacks in Iraq.
If confirmed, the raid would be the first known attack by US forces inside Syrian territory, says BBC diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus.
A Syrian government statement said: "Syria condemns this aggression and holds the American forces responsible for this aggression and all its repercussions."
He warned that Syria would "respond accordingly in the proper way".
The government newspaper Tishrin called the act a "war crime".
A building under construction was hit and four children and a married couple were among the dead, it said.
This is a sheer violation of International Law

So, if another country illegally enter the US to kill some it considered an enemy, and in doing so destroyed your home or business then all would be fine.
Rinse and repeat a few dozen times and all is still OK.

What does that have to do with the attack on the al queda leader in Syria? Didnt the US put the whole world on notice about 7 years ago that they would go after al queda wherever they were if those who run those countries didnt try to stop al queda?
