PerezIsraeli President Shimon Perez said Thursday the Zionist entity would respond with "full force" to any Syrian counter-attack, according to the Israeli JPost.

"The Zionist entity is not and has not been involved in the Syrian crisis, but if they try to hurt us, we will respond with full force."

In an effort to calm the Zionists, Perez dismissed the antagonistic political rhetoric directed against the Zionist entity, saying that such statements were "intended to create panic."

"Remember that we have a strong army and new, powerful protection systems that have never failed to protect the land, skies and the public safety," Peres addressed the Israelis in an attempt to abate their concerns.

Perez further urged the West to strike Syria, claiming, in his comment on eastern Gouta chemical attack, that the Syrian government committed a massacre in Damascus countryside and violated the moral boundaries.
