Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday said Israel is closely watching developments in Syria due to the possibility of Damascus transferring advanced and non-conventional weapons to Hezbollah should Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime fall.

"The moment the regime there falls, we'll be following these things, but at the end of the day it is very difficult to predict what will happen there," Barak told a group of youths performing national service.



One does not need intelligence reports or analyses to see what is going on in Syria, Barak continued, "it is enough to watch television."

"The Assad family is slaughtering its people, with the support of the Iranians and Hezbollah and the world is silent," the defense minister added.
