IDF Will Invade Syria if Missiles Fly

The IDF under Defense Minister Ehud Barak is planning a ground assault deep into Syrian territory if Syria attacks Israel with missiles, according to a report by Channel 10's military affairs correspondent.

The reporter said Syria possesses thousands of missiles capable of hitting virtually any point within Israel. The only way to counter this threat, he said, would be to launch a swift strategic ground assault into Syria until the missile attack ceases.
