Israel warned the Assad regime today that they will bomb Gaza, Beirut and Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon if Tel Aviv is attacked.
Israel has warned Syrian President Bashar Assad that should Tel Aviv be attacked, then it will retaliate by bombing the Gaza Strip and the whole of Lebanon.
Israel’s NFC website reported that the Jewish state’s government relayed this message to the Syrian president through European intelligence circles.
These sources said that seeing as Tel Aviv is Israel’s economic and financial hub, a retaliation for an attack against it, by Hizbullah, Hamas, or Syria, will not be limited to Syria, but all of Lebanon and Gaza.
NFC reported Israeli military circles as saying that the Jewish state’s message to Assad “is clear in that Damascus’ fate, should it be targeted, will not be different than Lebanon’s.”
These revelations came in light of an Iranian report that Assad had warned that he would “set fire” to the Middle East if foreign forces launched a military strike on his country and would ask for Hizbullah’s help to attack Israel.
An Arab source told Iran’s Fars news Agency that Assad made the warning to Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu during his visit to Damascus.
