Hezbollah is prepared to attack Israel in the event of Western intervention in Syria against the Syrian regime, a Lebanese Hezbollah official said Sunday according to the Palestinian News Network.
The unnamed official said Hezbollah was prepared if Western powers entered Syria in order to stop Syrian President Bashar Assad's crackdown on anti-government protesters, even if the "price for it" is to engage the IDF in battle in order to divert attention away from the Syrian arena. According to the report, Hezbollah believes that a war in the Middle East may prevent the fall of Assad.
Hezbollah supports a compromise based on reforms and "easing the crisis" between anti-government forces and the Syrian regime, according to the official.
