Vice Premier Silvan Shalom on Wednesday spoke to Israel Radio following reports that Israel Air Force warplanes struck a target on the Syrian-Lebanese border overnight, hours after Lebanon reported a series of three overflights by Israel in its airspace.

"The entire world has said more than once that it takes developments in Syria very seriously, developments which can be in negative directions," he told Israel Radio, recalling that President Barack Obama has warned Syrian President Bashar Assad of US action if his forces use chemical weapons.

Shalom added that any negative development will need to be prevented.

"The world, led by President Obama who has said this more than once, is taking all possibilities into account," Shalom added. "And of course any development which is a development in a negative direction would be something that needs stopping and prevention."

Meanwhile, Deputy foreign minister Danny Ayalon told Israel Radio that Israel will "not compromise on the security of the northern front."
