A senior Israeli official told the New York Times in a story published on Wednesday that if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad retaliates against Israeli attempts to stem the transfer of weapons to Hezbollah, “he would risk forfeiting his regime.”

The official, who declined to be identified and who was reportedly briefed by high-level officials on Israel’s assessment of the situation in Syria, told the New York Times that Israel “is determined to continue to prevent the transfer of advanced weapons to Hezbollah.”

“The transfer of such weapons to Hezbollah will destabilize and endanger the entire region,” the official said.
