The acting Iranian parliament speaker has said that any crisis caused by a military intervention in Syria would definitely engulf the Zionist regime.

MP Ali Larijani made the remarks in a speech during an open session of the Majlis on Wednesday in reference to calls by certain U.S. officials for a military campaign against Syria. 

“U.S. military officials probably have a poor understanding of themselves and regional issues because Syria is in no way similar to Libya, and (the effects of) creating another Benghazi in Syria would spread to Palestine, and ash rising from the flames would definitely envelop the Zionist regime,” Larijani stated.  
“It seems that the United States and the West are seeking to pave the way for a new crisis,” he added.  
Larijani also said, “U.S. officials should be aware of (the nature of) their dangerous game. Isn’t it necessary that they take measures in response to the military occupation of Bahrain? The question is why they are preventing the reform plan in Syria from moving forward.”  
He added, “Certain reactionaries in the region take pride in the fact that they have used money and weapons to destroy and incite a civil war in Syria.”
“The Majlis supports democratic reforms in Syria that will help uphold the people’s rights, condemns terrorist actions and opportunistic interference by certain countries in Syria as well as the hawkish and unwise messages of the United States, and warns that it may seem easy to embark on such an act of adventurism, but it will definitely be difficult to end it,” Larijani stated.
