Si non potes reperire Berolini in tabula, ludens essetis non WIF.
Hey, get your stinking cursor off my face! I got nukes, you know.
Just another precisation: if Italian (neutral vs. CW) invade Syria, how the notional units works?
If there a CW units defending the shore, the Notional Unit is still add?
Notionals are tricky. This is from 11.14, under "Invasion Combats":
"The notional unit is the same nationality as any major power or minor country with a real unit in the hex (owner’s choice if more than one). If there are no real units, it is the same nationality as the major power or minor country that controls the hex."
So if a CW unit is in the Syrian hex, the notional is CW. If the hex is empty, it is a Syrian notional.
But your question also includes a multiple states of war question! Usually Italy cannot attack CW units while not at war with CW. But here, since the CW unit is in a hex controlled by a power Italy is at war with (France), the Italians may attack it.
