A SYRIAN minister warned Israel in an interview published today that a major ground incursion into Lebanon would draw his country into the Middle East conflict.
“If Israel makes a land entry into Lebanon, they can get to within 20km of Damascus,” Information Minister Moshen Bilal told the Spanish newspaper ABC.
“What will we do? Stand by with our arms folded? Absolutely not. Without any doubt Syria will intervene in the conflict.”
