The Tel Aviv regime is favoring the resignation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in line with its policy of destroying the axis of resistance against Israel in the region, a journalist tells Press TV.
Lizzie Phelan, a British reporter and broadcaster, made the comment in an interview with Press TV on Monday.
"It is not about democracy and human rights in Syria, this is very clear as the Israeli officials say themselves time and time again this is about destroying the axis of resistance to Israel."
On Monday, Israeli media reported that Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon has called for the resignation of President Assad.
"We have a situation whereby a Western-backed illegal insurrection in Syria is being portrayed as a revolution being carried out by freedom fighters, meanwhile... genuine popular uprisings in Bahrain and Yemen are being suppressed by those very same Western forces and Saudi Arabia and Qatar and others," Phelan added.
