Yaakov Amidror said on Tuesday that the situation in Syria is “symbolizing the change in the Middle East” with Egypt and other counties working with Israel, a prospect that was once remote, in addition to its connection to other regional issues.

“Syria is symbolizing in a way the situation in the Middle East,” he said in a conference call hosted by the American Jewish Congress. “One is the fact that after the long [war] in Syria, the decision now is that [President Bashar] Assad is strong again, controlling part of the state,” thanks to support from Russia, in addition to Iran and its proxies, such as Hezbollah.
