A senior IDF commander said Wednesday that Israel did not want to involve Syria in its current conflict with Lebanon. Northern Front Commander Brig. Gen. Alon Friedman told Army Radio that Israel's current policy was not to attack Syria so long as Damascus did not get directly involved in the fighting. "Right now we don't have any intention, any thoughts of acting against Syria, unless Syria carries out some sort of act," Friedman said. "As long as Syria remains outside of these activities, we will keep the same policy that we have implemented until now."
