Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has remained tight-lipped about the potential military intervention by the United States in Syria.

At a weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem he along with other ministers refused to make any comment on U.S. President Barack Obama’s attempts to gain support for a strike against the Syrian regime.

There has much speculation in Israel on what action will take place against Damascus.

One Jerusalem resident said that he “was expecting Obama to be determined and carry out his promises and words but that apparently won’t happen. If it does it will be on a very small scale.” He believes that “a resolution to the problem depends on Israel and at one point or another will act either in tandem with the Americans o at a later date.”

Despite attempts to keep itself distant from the crisis in Syria, Israel has prepared itself by calling up reservists and deploying missile defence batteries in the north of the country. The latest developments of any potential action against the Assad regime have been dominating the Israeli media.
