Barak toured the border with Syria and warned of the possibility that Hezbollah could try to move Syria’s chemical weapons into Lebanon.

“There are also people who came to Syria from outside - from Global Jihad and al-Qaida and other Islamists - meaning that as long as the fighting carries on we will have even greater chaos in Syria the day after Assad,” Barak said.

Barak spoke with U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta on Wednesday, telling him of Israeli concerns about the situation in Syria.

“We are also closely tracking the possibility that Hezbollah will try to move advanced military platforms or chemical weapons from Syria to Lebanon.”

Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah confirmed on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, that Syria provided arms not only to Hezbollah, but to terrorist groups in Gaza as well.
