Top Iranian commander says attacking Syria will burn Israel down

Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces has emphasized that the consequences of a potential military attack against Syria by the US and its allies will have resounding impact on the Israeli regime.

Any military measure against Syria will draw the Zionists deep in the fire [as well],” said Major General Hassan Firouzabadi in an address on the recent American military threats against the Syrian nation and government on Thursday.

He further reiterated that any new military effort in the region would cause damages and benefit no one “except satisfying the Zionists.”

“This will be a huge damage to the human community and its effects will not be merely limited to the Muslim community,” added the top military commander.

He stated, “US, Britain and the rest of their allies will suffer greatly by deploying their military forces to the region and Syria.”

The Iranian commander pointed out that in the two years since the foreign-sponsored war against Syria has started, the country’s people have demonstrated a high sense of morale and resistance and the eventual outcome of such resistance will be a triumph in any war.

Firouzabadi, who also sits on Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, further noted that one of the reasons for the current rise of poverty and homelessness in the US is the huge expenses the American statesmen have imposed on their people by waging wars in other countries.

He then urged American thinkers and elites, as well as the international community, to look for ways to resolve the great problems that American rulers are imposing on the international community.

The call for military action against Syria intensified after the foreign-backed militants operating inside Syria claimed on August 21 that hundreds had been killed in a government chemical attack on militant strongholds in the Damascus suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar.

A number of Western countries, including the United States, France, and the UK, were quick to engage in a major publicity campaign to promote war against Syria despite the fact that Damascus categorically rejected the claim on the use of chemical arms.

Media outlets reported US plans for likely surgical attacks, which would be in the form of “cruise-missile strikes,” and “could rely on four US destroyers in the Mediterranean [Sea].” The plan was said to be awaiting US President Barack Obama’s go-ahead.

Washington has said it is willing to go ahead with its plans for a strike on Syria even without the approval of the United Nations or the support of its allies.
