The US and its allies are seeking to collapse the Syrian government because President Bashar al-Assad does not meet Zionist Israeli interests, an analyst tells Press TV.
“What is going on? Is it the destruction of a country because that country took a strong stand against Israel?” Omar Nashabi, an expert in judicial affairs and crime, said in an interview with Press TV.
“They (the Western states) are using the United Nations, they’re using this whole discussion but the bottom line is they want to destroy Syria,” he added.
The analyst noted that all the violence which erupted in Syria is aimed to topple the Syrian government.
“They (the Western states) want to weaken Syria; they want to remove this regime and put a regime that is pro-NATO, pro-Western interests in the region because Syria under Assad is a problem for NATO’s interests and for America’s interests and for Israeli interests in the region,” Nashabi said.
Syria has been gripped by more than 16 months of unrest.
Damascus blames “outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, asserting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
