Syria warns Israel of “grave consequences” for continuing reprisals

The Syrian army’s general command Sunday night warned Israel against continuing its cross border attacks, in response to Israel’s reprisals for two days of Syrian spillover mortar fire on the Golan. The Syrians stressed that the “Israeli enemy” would be held responsible for “the dangerous consequences of repeated actions of this kind” and went on to say: “After Syrian military forces succeeded to thwarting an attack by the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in the Al-Baath district of Quneitra, the Israel enemy conducted repeated attacks on our military posts in support of the terrorists in order to raise their morale.”  The Syrian general command went on to warn Israel of the “dangers of those aggressive operations for which the Israeli enemy will bear grave consequences.” The statement added that the Syrian army was determined to defeat the terrorist organizations which it termed “an arm of the Israeli enemy in the region.”
