Strike on Syria may trigger attack on Israel: Iran

Iran has issued a thinly veiled threat to Israel, saying that in the event of a US attack on Iranian ally Syria some groups may retaliate by striking the Jewish state.



Moscow: Iran has issued a thinly veiled threat to Israel, saying that in the event of a US attack on Iranian ally Syria some groups may retaliate by striking the Jewish state.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said at a briefing today that if the US launches a military strike against Syria, Israel would be under threat from "some groups and movements that have formed over the past two or three years." He didn`t elaborate.

He said Iran welcomes Russia`s initiative calling for Syria to place its chemical weapons under international control.
At the same time, he insisted that Iran has a proof that the chemical attack last month was launched by Syrian rebels, not government forces as the US claims.
