Israel has occupied part of Syria, the Golan Heights since the 1967 Arab-Israeli War. From there it has been supporting anti-Syrian government Islamist rebels.
Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that Lebanon and Syria would constitute “one front” against his country if a new war were to break out.
Hezbollah and Israel fought a devastating conflict in 2006, and the Lebanese Shiite group is currently backing President Bashar al-Assad’s regime in the Syrian civil war.
Both countries border Israel to its north.
