Damascus: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has threatened Israel with retaliation to any future military aggression and with renewed fighting in the Golan Heights.

"We have informed all the parties who have contacted us that we will respond to any Israeli aggression next time," Assad told Hezbollah-owned Al Manar TV on Thursday.

"There is clear popular pressure to open a new front of resistance in the Golan," Assad said.

"There are several factors, including repeated Israeli aggression," he said, referring to reported Israeli air strikes on Syria.

There was no immediate comment on Assad's remarks from Israel, which seized the Golan from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War.

Assad, whose forces are battling alongside fighters from the Lebanese Shia movement, Hezbollah, to recapture the key town of Qusayr near the border with Lebanon, said he was "very confident" of victory.

"There is a world war being waged against Syria and the policy of (anti-Israeli) resistance... (but) we are very confident of victory," he said.
