Israel Will Hold Iran Reponsible for Missile Fire from Syria

(Jerusalem Post) Herb Keinon - Amid intelligence reports Sunday that Iran is planning a missile strike against Israel from Syria, former Israeli national security adviser Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror said the reports were a signal to Tehran that Israel knows of these plans and will hold it responsible for its actions. Amidror said it was important to reveal Iran's intentions beforehand, in order to rob the Iranians of deniability. "It is clear that if Israel is attacked by any missiles, we know - and they know that we know - that this is the Iranians, and the consequences will be directed towards the Iranians." Amidror said that if the Iranians attack Israel - as they did three months ago when attempting to fly a drone with explosives into the country - "there will be consequences, such as a counterattack by Israel on Iranian interests." The Iranians "will have to pay" if they attack Israel.
