Assad to declare war on Israel?
Would he, could he be this stupid
Rumours are surfacing online that following the latest volley of
attacks on the Syrian regime, President Bashar al-Assad will soon
officially declare war on Israel, with speculators pointing to 5am local
time for official confirmation. This information continues to persist
despite the technical state of war that currently exists between the two
Many however, have been quick to dismiss these reports as strictly
rumour, with various commentators claiming that such a move would be
sure to end Assad's reign of terror in Syria "within a week".
UPDATE 03:15am GMT:
5am local time in Syria has passed without comment from military
authorities or the Assad regime. Speculation continues about the nature
of the attack with some insisting that Israel's weaponry was
"nuclear-like", that chemicals can be "smelt" in the air, and that the
attack was co-ordinated by Israel with help from Syrian rebel forces.
UPDATE: 04:36am GMT:
Sources suggest that Qassiyoun mountain was the home to many stationed
Assad forces, with some projections claiming over 10,000 could have been
stationed in and around the area.
Nah, even Assad isn't dumb or desperate enough to do that. He's not going to declare war on Israel. Is he?
