Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has said that Syrian President Bashar Assad has lost his legitimacy and the fall of his regime would deal a blow to Iran and Hizbullah.
In an interview with French daily Le Figaro over the weekend, Barak said: “If Assad falls, this would deal a severe blow to Iran and Hizbullah, a significant weakening of the Shiite arc.”
“The fact that Turkey has stopped supporting Assad is very significant,” he said.
Barak added that Assad could only remain in power for a period of six months. “He has reached the point of no return.”
