It is all about Israel

""Mr Assad's fall would mean less military and political aid for Hizbollah, reducing its threat to Israel." "Indeed, in the interview, Mr Yaalon did not deny Israel has had contact with opposition members, saying "whether there is contact or not, you don't expect me to discuss these things in the media". Analysts say Israeli officials have mostly kept mum about criticising events in Syria - which Israel considers an enemy - to avoid having Mr Al Assad try to win public support and sympathy by saying Israel is backing his rivals."
