That is the big Q  Can we interpret former IDF Military Intelligence chief Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin in any other manner??? Yadlin: "The rebels hate Assad much more than Israel . . . A confrontation with Israel would bring more danger, not responding would let Assad maintain the upper hand in the fight against the rebels"  Israel placed two batteries of "Iron Dome" in Haifa and Safed. Together these can shoot down 12 Katyusha or Grad rockets in one salvo (at the cost of 600,000 $). But if Hezballah is dragged into a conflict it may shoot hundreds of rockets per salvo. And your conclusion? Mine is>>> Better avoid another dirty war.
