Israel Beiteinu's Strategic Affairs Minister Avigdor Lieberman urged Israel's current government and the opposition to consider forming a national emergency government following reports on Saturday that Syrian President Bashar Assad was promised financial support by Iran if the country ceased all efforts to make peace with Israel. According to Lebanese Arabic daily Asharq Alawsat, Iran will fund, at a price of $1 billion, new Syrian fighter jets, tanks, missiles against naval craft and will aid in Syria's nuclear and chemical weapons research programs.
