A direct consequence of Israel's defeat in Lebanon: Syria is threatening war

Assad: Chances of peace with Israel low, Syria will 'liberate' Golan

Syrian President Bashar Assad has said that the chance of achieving a lasting peace with Israel is low, adding that Syria planned to "liberate" the Golan Heights, which the Israel Defense Forces captured in the 1967 Six-Day War.

Syria seeing how poorly the civilian and military leadership of Israel performed is starting to think that they can retake the Golan Heights by force.
