Ya'ari: Iranian Power at Stake in Syria


Arab-affairs expert Ehud Ya'ari said, Sunday, that there's a direct link between Syria and Iran. Addressing an opening session of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee convention in Washington, D.C., the Channel 2 analyst said both countries want to show the Arab world who's boss.

Ya'ari said Israel decided that it prefers Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad over a leader it is not familiar with. He added that Israel understands that the link between Damascus and Tehran must be broken and, in his opinion, Israel must cause Al-Assad to leave.
