Israel expects regime change in Syria
Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said on Tuesday that U.S pressure on Syria may bring about a dramatic change in Damascus.
In an interview to Israel Radio, Mofaz stated that Syria's involvement in the assassination of former Lebanon premier, Rafik Hariri, and its support of anti-US forces in Iraq, will bring about U.S actions that may overthrow Bashar Assad's regime.
"I won't be surprised if Syria gets a red-card (by the U.S)," Mofaz said. "(The U.S) will take actions against Syria, beginning with economic sanctions and moving on to others, that will make it clear to the Syrians that their policies do not comply with U.N decisions, the U.S' new world order or the prohibition of sovereign state's to support terrorism."
