Syrian rebels’ senior official says Israel must urge intervention

“If Israel wants to prove it has good intentions toward the Syrian people it must urge the international community to intervene in Syria,” a senior official in the Syrian opposition told Ynet Sunday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that Israel must urge intervention in order to “save Syria and the Syrian people and prevent Syria’s fall.”

He blamed Israel for giving the Syrian regime “diplomatic cover,” and said it must be removed if Israel “wants to show the Syrian people it is not assisting the Syrian regime and the Syrian terror.”
