Syrian President Bashar Assad is losing control of his country, and ultimately the country will become an arms warehouse accessible to all terror organizations, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz warned Wednesday.

Speaking during a Succot event for junior IDF officers, Gantz said that terror groups associated with global jihad are basing themselves in Syria and increasing the threat posed by the state.
