Iran threatens response if Syria attacked

Iranian threats against Israel continue: Iranian media outlets published sections of interviews given by Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad-Reza Sheybani, who said that Hizbullah’s military capability has greatly increased in the last decade, and threatened that if Israel harmed Syria, the Iranians would respond with force.

Sheybani added that he thought “Israel did not have the ability to deal with Iran’s capabilities.”
