Hezbollah Threatens To Attack Israel if the West Conducts Strikes on Syria

Will probably not retaliate if the strikes are limited


Hezbollah said it would fire rockets at Israel if the West attacks Syria in an attempt to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

However, if the strikes were limited, Hezbollah would probably not retaliate, according to sources close to the group quoted in a report on Wednesday in the LebaneseDaily Star.

"In the event of a qualitative [Western military] strike that aims to change the balance of power in Syria, Hezbollah will fight on various fronts," the senior source said.

"However, if the Western attack is limited to certain targets in Syria, then, Hezbollah will not intervene," said the source.
