Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday that the Syrian President Bashar Al Assad more or less won the war.

He then urged the United States to take more action as Iran and Hezbollah have both become significantly stronger due to their involvement in Syria. 

”I see a long international queue lining up to woo Assad, include Western nations, including moderate Sunnis. Suddenly everyone wants to get close to Assad”, Lieberman told Israel’s Walla news site in an interview.

“We hope the United States will become more active in the Syrian arena and the Middle East in general. We are faced with Russians, Iranians, and also the Turks and Hezbollah, and this is no simple matter to deal with, on a daily basis. The United States has quite a few challenges of its own, but as a trend – the more the United States will be active, the better it will be for the State of Israel”, he added.
