Israel Warns Syria, Iran

JERUSALEM () -- Israel, on high alert against attacks by Islamic Jihad marking the first anniversary of the assassination of the group's leader, has reportedly told Syria and Iran to prevent any such attack.

"We know that both Iran and Syria are centers of operation of terrorist organizations, and there is no doubt that they have weight regarding implementation of attacks," Yigal Pressler, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's adviser on "terrorism," told Israel's army radio Monday.

Local media said Netanyahu sent messages to Syria and Iran demanding they prevent Islamic Jihad from attacking Israel. His spokesman Shai Bazak refused to comment.
