Skip to comments.(Flashback) Syria's Bashar Assad: First We'll Deal with the Rebels, Then Israel

The real tools Israel uses today, more important than the most recent strikes, are the terrorists in Syria, Assad told the Al-Manar TV station, run by his Lebanese ally group Hezbollah. What they are doing is far more dangerous than what Israel has done recently.
This is the core issue, he continued. If we want to fight Israel, we must first deal with its emissaries in Syria.
Israel said the Iranian Revolutionary Guards planned the Thursday attack, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad carried it out.
According to a senior Israeli security official, it was Saeed Izadi, the head of the Palestinian Division of the Iranian al-Quds Force, who orchestrated the attack.
Throughout the Syrian civil war, mortar shells have occasionally strayed into Israel, but this was not the case on Thursday when the four rockets struck the Upper Galilee and Golan Heights, a defense official said Thursday.
We understand that this attack was clearly a deliberate one, he said.

Demented idiot can’t deal with the rebels in his own country and he thinks he can take on Israel. With what exactly?
Apparrently, Assad has not learned from his father’s past mistakes in frakin’ with Israel......
The real question here is “What will Russia do if Syria’s proxy allies become more aggressive towards Israel - and Israel in turns starts bombing Hezbollah sites in Syria?”
Russia really can’t take the chance of getting involved in that fight. I don’t think they will either.
People like him just don’t get it. It’s almost like Hitler saying to attack Russia while cowering in his bunker in 1945.
This article is several years old.
OP is a neocon globalist trying to whip up hatred of Syria.
PING to this flashback.
As Assad said: first the rebels, then Israel.
He also wants Palestine to have their own state and of course refuses to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The Israelis see the connection between Syria and Iran both of which are connected to Russia and that should help explain all the activities in the region in recent years from the war in Syria to the war in Ukraine etc. etc. etc.
Does the United States have to get drug into it all?
And, Israel is clearly an enemy of Assad and they have defacto supported both ISIS and Al Qaeda in Syria.
With Iran being the bigger bogeyman.
As a Norwegian?
I know our idiot politicians love to put their nose in there.
We helped Israel get the nuclear bomb.
Now let them have have at it.
