Senior Syrian official warns: if US strikes Damascus we'll set Tel Aviv on fire



LINK

quote:

A senior Syrian military official says if the U.S. or a coalition of nations attacks Syrian government forces, Syria and its allies will launch an immediate attack on Israel.

“If Damascus comes under attack, Tel Aviv will be targeted too and a full-scale war against Syria will actually issue a license for attacking Israel,” said the Syrian army official who spoke to Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency on condition of anonymity.

“We are rest assured that if Syria is attacked, Israel will also be set on fire and such an attack will, in turn, engage Syria’s neighbors,” he said in the Tuesday interview.

I'm not sure setting Israel on fire is a particularly good idea. Damascus has enough to deal with. Of course, Hezbollah could simply launch a number of rockets south - but they would pay a heavy price internally for that. The Lebanese want nothing to do with another war.

Big talk from Syria. Through all of this, Israel has been the most silent. I'm about 99% certain they have a plan to completely destroy Syria if ever such "fires" get started. Israel is the most powerful nation in that area. I wouldn't frick with them.

quote:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would respond forcefully to any retaliatory attacks against his country. After convening his security advisers on Tuesday to discuss the escalating crisis, Netanyahu vowed, “The state of Israel is ready for any scenario. We are not part of the civil war in Syria but if we identify any attempt whatsoever to harm us, we will respond and we will respond in strength.”

Israeli diplomatic correspondents reported that Netanyahu convened his security cabinet again on Wednesday morning to discuss Syria. This came as Israeli security and rescue forces began a two-day drill in the Golan Heights along the Syrian border on Tuesday.

My dad always told me not to screw with the quiet guy in the bar when it is about to hit the fan. Israel has been awfully quiet this week.

(1) Syria is posturing IMO because they know if they attack Israel, they are done...all of them, Assad, the rebels, everyone, and
(2) I wonder what the level of communication is between the US State Dept/Pentagon and Israel right now. I wonder if Israel is receiving real-time intelligence briefings from the US.

Isreal would rip them a new one. All they need is to be taken off the leash.

They'd be commuting suicide if they followed through with their threat and they know it.
