(Israel National News) Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday there was “popular pressure” to open a military front against Israel on the Golan Heights, and warned his country would bomb Israel if it attacks Syria again.

“There is clear popular pressure to open a new front of resistance in the Golan,” Assad said in an interview with Al-Manar, the television channel of his ally, Lebanon’s Shiite Hizbullah movement. “This is a political-ideological matter that will eventually turn into a military one.”
