The United States has launched a campaign against Israel in wake of its refusal to attack Syria.
Diplomatic sources said Israel rebuffed a request by President Barack Obama to attack the Syrian Army as it advanced toward rebel strongholds in the Golan Heights in May 2014. The sources said Obama’s aides, including National Security Adviser Susan Rice, warned Israeli leaders that they would regret their decision.
"The Israelis were warned that their refusal to attack [Syrian President Bashar] Assad's forces would be very costly, and over the last few weeks there has been increasing evidence of U.S. retaliation," a source said.
