Larger Mideast war looming? Israel will 'regret' attacks on Syria - Iranian Security Head — RT

Israel will regret its attack against Syria, a top Iranian official has warned during a visit to Damascus. The remarks come as Israel is reportedly planning to set up a buffer zone along its border with Syria to guard against Islamist fighters.
The results of the attack would be bad for Israel, like those suffered during previous conflicts initiated by Tel Aviv, such as the 34-day war with Lebanese militant group Hezbollah in 2006, said Saeed Jalili, head of Iran’s National Security Council.
"Today, too, both the people and the government of Syria are serious regarding the issue. And also the Islamic community is supporting Syria," Reuters quoted Jalili as saying.
The remarks came on Monday shortly after similar statements by Syria. Top Syrian officials, including President Bashar Assad, warned earlier that the Wednesday airstrike on a military research center in Jamraya, outside Damascus, would not go unanswered.
The Israeli attack drew criticism not only from Syria’s key regional ally Iran, but also from its adversary Turkey. In a comment on the airstrike, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday that "Israel has a mentality of waging state terrorism. Right now, there is no telling what it might do and where it might do it."
