'Israel warned Syria during Gaza op: If Hizbullah attacks we'll attack you'

During Operation Cast Lead, Israel warned Syria that it would bomb sites and facilities in Damascus if Hizbullah fires rockets on Israeli towns and communities in the North, Egyptian paper Al Ahram reported Tuesday. The report said Israel conveyed the warning to Syrian President Bashar Assad through a European interlocutor. Israel warned Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah against entering a confrontation with the Jewish State and even demanded he make an official statement on the matter, according to Al Ahram. The Jerusalem Post could not independently verify the report.
