Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has threatened to attack Israel in the event of any Western military intervention in his country's domestic affairs, Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv," Assad said at a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Tuesday.

The comments came after Russia and China had vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Syria for its brutal crackdown on protesters.

Assad also vowed to call on the Lebanese Shia movement Hezbollah for support.

"All these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf and American and European interests will be targeted simultaneously," he said.

More than 2,700 people are estimated to have been killed across Syria since protests against the Assad regime began in March.

Russia's UN envoy Vitaly Churkin said Moscow vetoed the resolution - drafted by France with Britain, Germany and Portugal - because it was based on "the philosophy of confrontation."

    1. Why the need to move the rockets closer to Israeli border exposing them on IAF attacks? Are there no tunnels?

    2. Without efficient Anti Aircraft Systems the Syrian towns and army would be vulnerable to reprisal attacks.

    3. Using in act of despair what Syria has at her disposal (hidden underground in one place) Israel would be coerced to use Jericho with nuclear warheads.That would be the end of Syria, and end of the world we know with Israel still digged in Palestine land.

    Regards

    P.S. I am not Israel's backer but I am not blind.

      The problem will be Iran, they have a mutual defense agreement, Israel couldn’t defeat a small militia as Hezbollah in 2006 now will face 2 or more real armies capables to reach telaviv.
