Israeli deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon noted on Friday that the Arab world is passing through a phase that will restore it back to the way it was before World War I, reported Israel Radio.
He also predicted Syria’s fragmentation into provinces, adding that Lebanon will suffer the same fate in the future.
He ruled out the possibility of the emergence of an Arab alliance that would stand in opposition to Israel in the next 10 to 15 years.
After their internal instability, the Arab countries will realize the importance of cooperating with Israel, he added.
Syria has been witnessing anti-regime protests since March 2011.
The regime’s crackdown against protesters has left over 20,000 dead.
A high-ranking Israeli officer supported on Friday Ayalon’s statements, saying that there is a possibility of the formation of a Kurdish province in northern Syria.
There is evidence of this development, he said on condition of anonymity.
He predicted the formation of an Alawite district in the coastal region, which would include the cities of Tartous and Latakia.
Moreover, he said that a Sunni province would also be formed as would a Druze one in Jabal al-Druze.
The Tehran-Damascus-Hizbullah alliance will be affected by the developments in Syria as this is the weapons route and the Iranians are very concerned with the developments in Syria, added the Israeli officer.
He also noted that Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is passing through a tense period as demonstrated by the frequency of his speeches in recent weeks.
