The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Syrian envoy responds forcefully to suggestion of Israel attacking Syria

Syrian envoy: We’ll destroy Israeli nuclear facilities with 20 missiles Jordanian media report that Syria’s ambassador in Amman, Bahjat Suleiman said that his country is capable of destroying Israel’s nuclear facilities should Damascus come under attack YNet, Roi Kais   08.23.12,  
Speaking during a meeting with a Jordanian-Syrian delegation at the
embassy in Amman, Syria’s Ambassador to Jordan Bahjat Suleiman said
that Syria is capable of destroying Israel’s nuclear facilities with
20 missiles, should Syria be attacked, in spite of the many casualties
Syria would incur over such a move, Jordanian media reported
Thursday…. What the Zionists have, nuclear weapons-wise, could cause
us major casualties should they attack Syria. In contrast, we could
cause massive losses to their nuclear facilities and we wouldn’t need
more than 20 missiles,” the ambassador told the delegation.

According to Jordanian reports, the ambassador said that in spite of
the disparity in the number of casualties, Israel would not be able to
bear the loss of life and the significant strategic losses.

He explained that this would lead Israelis to emigrate elsewhere and
would symbolize the beginning of the end of the State of Israel.

According to the Ambassador, Syria would not stand idly by if
attacked, but would not be the one to launch a war….
