Jerusalem: Israel on Wednesday warned the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that it would pay a "high price" for helping militant groups bent on attacking the Jewish state.

"We see the Assad regime as responsible for what is happening under its authority, and if it continues to cooperate with terror elements who seek to harm Israel, we will make it pay a high price," Israel Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said just hours after the air force bombed Syrian military targets in response to a bomb attack which wounded four soldiers.
