Damascus - Iran told Israel on Monday it would regret its air strike against Syria last week, without spelling out whether Iran or its ally planned any military response.

“They will regret this recent aggression,” Saeed Jalili, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told a news conference in Damascus a day after holding talks there with President Bashar al-Assad.

Jalili likened Israel’s attack on a military compound north-west of Damascus on Wednesday to previous conflicts including its 34-day war with Lebanon’s Shi’ite militant group Hezbollah in 2006, all battles that he said Israel had lived to regret.

“Today, too, both the people and the government of Syria are serious regarding the issue. And also the Islamic community is supporting Syria,” he said.

Jalili said Iran, in its current role as head of the Non-Aligned Movement, would work on Syria’s behalf on the international stage in response to the attack.

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak said on Sunday the attack on a Syrian arms complex showed Israel was serious about preventing the flow of heavy weapons into Lebanon, appearing to acknowledge for the first time that Israel had carried out the strike.

Diplomats, Syrian rebels and security sources say Israeli jets bombed a convoy near the Lebanese border, apparently hitting weapons destined for Hezbollah.

You Satmar/NK types live in a fantasy world. Could you please get real.
Had Israel not bombed the convoy and installation in Syria, WMD would have reached the hands of Hezbollah. Is that what you want?

“ רפואה שלימה ”? he needs a brain transplant. So, Israel should let Hezbollah arm themselves with weapons that will be harder for Israel to defend themselves later on. He then would complain why Israel allowed that to happen.

Intimidation, threats, and scare tactics, are all typical of terrorists and those who are bullies in general.
Not one word is mentioned by the terrorists about the fact that the weapons that were about to be delivered, were to used to murder and maim thousands. Instead of talking about that, they rattle their swords against Israel for destroying the convoy of trucks bringing in those weapons.
So here comes the intimidating threats to show off for the Arab world that they will try to scare the Jews which is the common enemy of anyone who reads the koran.
That too, contains scare tactics, threats, and intimidation, also known as bullying.

People please, what difference does it make what Arab country has these weapons. If G-d forbid they want to use them against Israel they will, and the same tragic results could happen ch'v. So Israel is in a very very tough situation, act and take out these weapons (and maybe instigate worse tensions and retaliations) or let them pass into Lebanon and if used by Hezbollah or whoever else, bomb them to kingdom come!

I would take the Iranians very, very seriously. They never attack directly, but have more than enough proxies around the world to do the dirty work for them. They are unlikely to take revenge on an Israeli military target, but I fear for yet another attack on Jews somewhere, somehow. Not that we should ever let them stop us from doing what is right. ס'איז שווער צו זייַן אַ איד
