Israel will weigh military action if it suspects Syria's chemical weapons might fall into the hands of terrorist organizations, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday.

"We will do everything that is needed" to ensure Syria's WMD stockpiles are not transferred, Netanyahu said at a meeting with EU ambassadors stationed in Israel.

Netanyahu told the European envoys that fighters from Hezbollah were taking an active role in the slaughter taking place in Syria, and that Syrian President Bashar Assad would not have survived this long without Iran's intervention. The EU has been steadfast in its refusal to place Hezbollah on its list of terrorist organizations.
