The United States and Israel were in discussions over whether Israel should take out Syrian weapons facilities as the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad falters, The New York Times reported Thursday.

According to the report, which cited two administration officials, the United States is opposed to such an attack "because of the risk that it would give Mr. Assad an opportunity to rally support against Israeli interference."

Israel discussed the Syrian issues with US National Security Advisor Thomas Donilon during his visit last weekend, the Times quoted a White House official as saying.
