Israelis question logic of attack on Syria: "'This action could have extremely dangerous consequences and provoke an uncontrollable escalation' ", [Labour's Ofir Pines said]

Yediot: "The bombing of a terrorist base -- which was moreover empty -- in Syria has cancelled out the impact on international opinion of the attack in Haifa"

"As the case of the woman suicide bomber from Jenin demonstrates, for every terrorist who is killed, another comes along who wants to avenge his death."

Margalit: "The bombardment of the empty Islamic Jihad training camp north of Damascus is a harmful joke by a helpless government," he wrote.

"It will remain a joke only if it is a one-time event carried out by a frustrated group of ministers and it will become harmful if it is repeated in the future."
