IDF ground forces chief Maj. Gen. Guy Tzur said the Syria army may be weaker in respect of its munitions and stocks, but two and-a-half years of fighting a civil war have toughened its fighting capabilities. “We don’t underestimate the Syrian army,” he said in a radio interview Thursday.

Regarding Hizballah, he said “Israel has a substantial edge over this terrorist organization” and warned that if attacked, Israel would not stand idly by.
