Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, responding to the report, told his cabinet on Sunday that Israel was prepared for any scenario, Israel Hayom reported.

“The Middle East is currently facing one of the most sensitive eras it has seen in decades, and at the center: the escalating shock waves in Syria,” Netanyahu said. “We are closely monitoring the developments and changes there, and we are prepared for any scenario.”

Israel is determined to “prevent, as much as possible, the transfer of advanced weapons into the hands of Hezbollah and terror organizations,” Netanyahu added.
