The US embassy in the Syrian capital may close following a raid on eastern Syria this week blamed by Damascus on Washington, an embassy statement said on Wednesday.

"The American community in Syria should be aware that unforeseen events or circumstances may occur that could cause the US Embassy in Damascus to close to the public for an unspecified period of time," the statement said.
