VIDEO: Tension rises as Bashar al-Assad possibly becomes Israel’s next target

Iranian military intervention in Syria may cost Syrian President Bashar al-Assad his life after an Israeli minister hinted at a possible assassination attempt.

Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz on Monday demanded that Syria should turn into an Iranian military base to wage attacks against Israel.

“If Assad allows Iran to turn Syria into a military vanguard against us, to attack us from Syrian territory, he should know that would be the end of him, the end of his regime,” Steinitz told the Ynet news site.
