Former IDF Intel Chief wanted to assassinate Bashar al-Assad

TEHRAN, Jan. 02 (MNA) – Major General Aviv Kochavi, incoming Chief of Staff for the Israeli regime's IDF, once planned to have Syrian President Bashar al-Assad killed for his support for Hezbollah.

Elaph quoted an unnamed senior Israeli regime's official as saying that when serving as the IFD's Director of Military Intelligence, Kovachi was in favour of toppling Assad, even if it meant resorting to assassination.

Whereas Kochavi backed the idea of ousting the Assad, which "would bring calamities to Israel from Iran and Hezbollah", Mossad head Yossi Cohen "wanted an address in Syria", according to the official.
