Israel is increasingly concerned that Damascus’s stockpile of chemical weapons could “become a part of the Syrian crisis,” a government official said Monday, explaining comments on the matter Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made prior to meeting visiting Republican senator-elect Ted Cruz from Texas.
