Assad: Syria expects Israeli attack at any time
In a comprehensive interview given to the Kuwaiti newspaper al-Anbaa and published Saturday, President Bashar al-Assad talked about Syria's stances towards the regional and international developments.
With regard to the possibility of war with Israel for the restoration of occupied Golan, the president said: "Syria expects an Israeli aggression at any time, and Syria knows that Israel has a powerful army with the direct support of the United States. Syria will defend itself. Everybody saw how Hizbullah fighters fought to defend their country. One should be fierce in defending his country and Syria has begun to prepare itself within the available potentials, but the solution remains in the peace process which is not costly."
Regarding Iraq, the president said that what is happening there is a catastrophe and Syria told the Americans that they would win the war but would turn Iraq into a real mess and chaos and there would be bad repercussions on Iraq's neighboring states and even the more distant nations.
