Assad flees to Iran as officials declare 'Israel will burn'

Syrian Pres. Bashar al-Assad and his family arrived in Tehran Aug 28, landing at Khomeini Airport aboard his presidential jet. Iranian foreign ministry sources confirmed this with the Lebanese newspaper a-Nahar.

Accompanying the Assad family was a group of senior Syrian government officials who together with Assad are officially there to hold talks with the Iranian government about a Syrian response to a possible US strike on Syrian WMD assets which is expected to take place in the near future.

As this information made its way into a-Nahar, Syrian Army generals continued their dire warning that if Syria is attacked, 'Israel will burn' and that if Syria weakens, 'certain irresponsible groups' will be formed that would endanger Israel.
