A Syrian official has warned that Israel might strike specific targets and places in Syria just like what is happening now in Gaza and Lebanon, the independent Syria- News website reported on Saturday.
Syrian Minister of Immigrants Butheina Sha'ban was quoted as saying that "the situation is dangerous and everybody must be careful."
Sha'ban, meanwhile, also criticized the U.S. policy of supporting Israel and giving up the peace process.
Tensions between Israel and Lebanon have been drastically heightened since Wednesday when Hizbollah militants kidnapped two Israeli soldiers and killed eight in a border clash with Israeli troops.
In response, Israel waged air raids on Lebanese targets and blockaded Lebanese sea ports.
While in the Gaza Strip, Israeli troops pressed ahead a broad operation in a bid to free an Israeli soldier snatched by Palestinian militants on June 25 and halt Palestinian rocket attacks.
