Netanyahu: Israel Will ‘Respond Fiercely’ if Attacked by Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that while Israel is not part of the Syrian civil war, the Jewish state would “respond, and we will respond fiercely” if attacked.

Netanyahu held an urgent meeting with his security cabinet on Tuesday afternoon in Tel Aviv, following a meeting between senior Israeli officials and U.S. security officials in Washington, DC. After the Israeli security cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said Israel “was prepared for any eventuality” relating to the Syria conflict.

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon echoed Netanyahu’s stern warning to Syria.

“Those who dare to test us will encounter the IDF’s might,” Ya’alon said. “Facing the storm, the IDF’s spirit is no less strong.”

Meanwhile, late Monday, U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice hosted a delegation led by Israel’s National Security Chairman Yaakov Amidror for consultations on Iran, Egypt, Syria and a range of other regional security issues.

“Today’s meetings were the latest in a series of regular, high-level consultations between the United States and Israel, consistent with our strong bilateral partnership, and part of our unshakable commitment to Israel’s security,” a White House statement read.

  4. Israel, let me apologize in advance of any mayhem and bloodshed for the monster fool that America has elected as president, whose ego will not allow him to choose the path of reason. Only 9% of Americans approve of his beginning a war in Syria….which may in turn start an international disaster. I am deeply sorry. May Hashem protect you.

    Once again the Prime Minister has stated that if Israel is attacked he will retaliate. I hope that this statement he is making is true, and that they should retaliate at least five times in return. If you are only going to retaliate one time it will only let the other side attack some more. You cannot do an Eye for an Eye. It has to be five times for one.
