Israel has made it clear since long that it would not shy away from use of force to prevent advanced Syrian weapons from reaching its Hezbollah allies or Islamist rebels.

Israelis are worried that if Assad loses the battle  then Israel would become the next target of Islamist fighters putting an end to the four decades of relative calm along the Golan Heights border zone.
