Report: Syria bracing for Israeli attack|
newspaper al-Watan reports of Syrian preparations against Israeli strike
during coming summer; says Israel looking to May, June as possible window
preparing for war? Qatar's al-Watan newspaper reported Monday that
political and media sources in Damascus expressed concerns that war may
breakout between Israel and Syria before long.

preemptive steps taken by Syria, which is supposedly responding to reports
of Israel holding strategy meeting with the US in an attempt to devise an
attack on both Syria and Iran.

covering the Golan Heights was closely monitored by a high-ranking
This close cooperation, added the source is evident that the two wish
to send a message to the "resistance" in the area, namely Syria, Iran, Hizbullah and Hamas, that any the US is aware of the fact that any
American strike against Iran may entail the latter bombing Israel and
launching two new fronts against Syria and Lebanon.
Though titled a readiness drill against natural disasters, the
Syria-crossing drill, added the report, has raised public concerns of a
Mideast war pending in the summer.
