Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Shaul Mofaz warned Monday that the duress which Syrian President Bashar Assad finds himself under could soon lead to an armed conflict between Syria and Israel.

"The closer the Assad regime in Syria gets to death's door, the bigger the threat against Israel becomes," the Kadima Mk stated in an interview with Army Radio.

"It can be reasonably assumed that in the twilight of his rule, Assad will try to deflect attention from the massacre of his own people to a conflict with Israel," Mofaz added.
