Or would it be more truthful to say it is the softer of the two targets. Israel would get an easy victory with almost zero casualties compared to Iran. Syrian military is in disarray and unlikely to mount an effective defense should Israel attack. Iran on the other hand would be an extremely costly if not suicidal exercise. Both would achieve the aim of deflecting from the Occupation which underscores most Israeli battles and allows them to make excuses for taking more Palestinian territory. Alas the World has woken up to that ploy and it won't work.
