Israel warns Syria of defeat in war

 

Israel's foreign minister today said Damascus would be defeated and President Bashar al-Assad would lose power in any future conflict in response to Syria's accusation Israel was pushing for a war.

"Our message must be clear to Assad. You will not just lose the next war, you and your family will lose power. Neither you nor the Assad family will remain in power," Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a speech near Tel Aviv.
