Abbasi warned that their “oppressors” want to turn Syria into another Libya “where they start with conflicts within, then a NATO bombardment to replace the current government.”
“It’s necessary to warn the American strategists that the Zionist regime is hostage to three forces: one, the Syrian government, then the resistance in Lebanon, and last the Islamic resistance in Gaza,” Abbasi said.
If Syria is attacked by NATO, he warned, the resistance, instead of responding to NATO, will attack Israel.
Iran not only has sent forces to help Assad suppress the uprising, but also has established a joint war room with Syria and Hezbollah, warning that any aggression against Syria will result in a brutal response.
