BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Lebanese Speaker of Parliament, Nabih Berri, issued a stern warning to the U.S. and Israel, Saturday, about attacking Syria again. L
“There are American interests in Syria and if there is a larger war, I don’t think even the American President can bear the consequences,” Berri warned.
Berri also warned that Syria has the capabilities to defend themselves if Israel should launch another attack inside the country.
Speaking to the Associated Press on Friday, the Speaker stated that Israel and the US cannot bear the consequences of a wide-scale regional war.
The long-time Lebanese politician has been a key ally of Syria for decades and continues to maintain diplomatic relations with Damascus, despite strong opposition to the government of Bashar Al-Assad from the March 14th political bloc.
