12. Spiegel lost in translation: "will join conflict if IDF approaches Syria"
Syrian minister: We will join conflict if IDF approaches Syria
By News Agencies

MADRID - Syria will enter the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah if Israel Defense Forces ground troops enter Lebanon and approach Syria, Syrian Information Minister Mohsen Bilal said in an interview published on Sunday.

"If Israel invades Lebanon over ground and comes near to us, Syria will not sit tight. She will join the conflict," he told newspaper ABC.

-Israel ha movilizado 5.000 soldados reservistas y parece estar en marcha una incursin por tierra en el Lbano. Sigue siendo la postura de Siria la de no participar en el conflicto?

-Si Israel entra en el Lbano por va terrestre, pueden llegar a situarse a veinte kilmetros de Damasco, qu vamos a hacer, quedarnos de brazos cruzados? Absolutamente no. Sin duda, Siria intervendr en el conflicto. Esto no significa que Siria est dando la bienvenida al conflicto; trabajamos con Espaa para conseguir un alto el fuego. Pero si las tropas israeles nos provocan, Damasco actuar para garantizar la seguridad nacional del territorio sirio.

In other words: don't come too close to Damascus.
