The worsening crisis in Syria necessitated restoring relations with Turkey, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wrote on his Facebook page on Saturday evening.

"It is important that Turkey and Israel, that both border with Syria, could communicate with each other," Netanyahu wrote, noting the restoration of ties is also needed to deal with other regional challenges.

"The constantly changing reality around us forces us to reexamine our relations with countries in the region all the time," the prime minister said.

"Syria is crumbling, and its massive and advance weapons arsenal are starting to fall into the hands of different factions. The biggest risk is [Syria's] chemical weapons falling into the hands of terror organizations," he added.
