Report: Assad told Davutoğlu Syria would set fire on Israel if NATO attacks

Syria’s embattled President Bashar al-Assad allegedly told Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu earlier in August during their marathon talks in Damascus that Syria will set fire on the Middle East and strike on Tel-Aviv if NATO attacks his country which is on the edge of a rapidly looming civil war.

“If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv,” Assad reportedly told Davutoğlu after Turkish foreign minister allegedly conveyed the United States’ warning message to him, Iran’s Fars news agency reported on Tuesday.

Assad also told Davutoğlu that Damascus will also call on Lebanon’s Hezbollah to launch “such an intensive rocket and missile attack on Israel that the Israeli spy agencies could never imagine.”

“All these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack the US warships in the Persian Gulf and the US and European interests will be targeted simultaneously,” Assad said.

The report came at a time when Turkey’s military announced that it will conduct a military drill Turkey’s southern province of Hatay, home of some 7,500 Syrian refugees who fled violence in Syria.
