Bryen discusses Israel's policy of pre-empting threatening weapons systems rather than choosing sides in the war.
Multimedia for this item
JPC Senior Director Shoshana Bryen addressed the Center for Security Policy on 17 May 2013. The topic was "Israel's View of the War in Syria," and her remarks focused on Israel's concerns for weapons systems that present specific threats to Israeli security, rather preferring one side over another in the fighting. She noted that Israel has a long history of pre-emptive threats beginning with the 1967 Six Day War, strikes against the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear programs, and attacking armed convoys in Sudan even before the strikes in Syria aimed at preventing Hezbollah from acquiring more sophisticated systems from the Syrian arsenal.
