If Syrian strongman Bashar Assad feels that he is at “a dead end,” he may adopt the so-called Samson option, Middle East expert Dr. Mordechai Kedar told Arutz Sheva's Yoni Kempinski at week's end

"It could be that Assad, when he sees that everything is finished, he will shoot whatever he can, missiles and all kinds of weapons which he has, in all directions. Towards Turkey, maybe to Lebanon, maybe to here as well, and he will say, “Hey, if I go to hell, let the others go to hell with me,” and he enter the history books as someone who really injured Israel in some way, or Turkey, or whoever.
