As talk and rumors of an impending Western attack against Syria mount, a top Syrian official said Monday that if attacked, his country would react – against Israel.
Speaking to an Arabic-language radio station operated by the United States, Syria’s Deputy Information Minister Halaf Al-Maftah said that Israel would face not only Syria in the event that the US, Britain and France attempted to unseat Bashar al-Assad. A coalition consisting of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria would respond to any attack against Assad with a response against Israel. In addition, terrorist groups in Syria and Lebanon would attack Israel with full force.
Al-Maftah added that Syria has “strategic weapons” that it would use in its attack on Israel. He did not specify what those weapons were.
“Syria is ready to deal with all scenarios,” said Al-Maftah. “We consider these declarations of a possible attack as a form of psychological warfare and pressure on Syria. We are not worried about them. We hope that those threatening us will listen closely to what we are saying. We believe that the only solution for the Syrian issue is a political one,” he added.
In recent days, the U.S. has sent warships off Syria’s coast, with the assumption being that they were waiting for word from the White House to attack Syria and remove Assad from power. Over the weekend, the U.S. Navy expanded its presence in the Mediterranean Sea with a fourth cruise-missile-armed warship.

Thanks for the reblog! God Bless and keep you.
Now when they remove Assad from power, who will remain in power? Al Qaeda? Great choice: murderers and terrorists… This world is headed to its very end!
I agree Arbella, this is so clear to those of us that are watching. It’s getting very serious very fast! And yes we are heading right straight into the middle of prophecy! Looking up, for our redemption draws near.
I told mu husband last night that we are already in the tribulation. He says ‘How do you know’? I just know, it’s happening all around us. Evil is becoming good and good is becoming evil, just read the news… I can’t wait for Jesus to come back!
I know, I agree!
