Syrian President Bashar Assad's fall is an Israeli interest, former Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin told Israel Radio on Sunday.

"He is much more dangerous to Israel than any regime that would follow him, because he allows Iran to smuggle missiles and weapons into Lebanon," Yadlin said.

Yadlin was responding to a report in the Times of London quoting an Israeli official as saying Israel prefer Assad to survive to takeover of Syria by extreme Islamistic rebel groups.
