Israel, in cooperation with the US and others in the international community, is preparing itself for the possibility of far reaching changes in the Syrian regime, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday.
Netanyahu, speaking at the outset of the weekly cabinet meeting, said those changes could have “implications” for the “sensitive weapons systems there.”
Israel has in recent weeks expressed its serious concern about how changes in Syria will impact upon Damascus’ huge stockpile of chemical weapons.
Netanyahu told the cabinet there are “dramatic developments” in Syria now “about every day.”
Turning toward developments in the West Bank, Netanyahu said there has been an increase in disturbances there in the form of attacks on IDF forces.
