Could Assad attempt to unite all the warring factions in Syria by instigating a war with Israel? If he’s desperate enough..and it might work..

Saddam tried to do the same in 1991 by attacking Israel, in an attempt to get the entire Arab world on his side.

Is there perhaps just a little contempt here for Syrian efforts and abilities?

The Israel Defense Forces are so forbearing toward their enemies they follow the same sportsmanlike rules of engagement as baseball — three strikes and you’re out.

Thanks BenLurkin. Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz:
"They fire on it once. They fire on it twice. They fire on it a third time, from a clear Syrian position," he said in a speech. "One time, okay. Two times, okay. Three times, too many. The position was destroyed."
Of course, the Syrian/Iranian sources have a completely different account.
