“We can’t see any conclusion to the current situation with or without Assad,” said Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy Friday. “The worst outcome is a chaotic solution,” said the minister. “But we can manage it.” He added: "Whether it will remain as a political entity, or divided into sectarian enclaves with sectarian leadership, or whether in chaos for a very long period of time … all of us should look to our interests." Ya'alon was scheduled to meet with US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Friday p.m. for an in-flight demonstration of the MV-22 Osprey. Israel became in April the first foreign country to agree to purchase the tilt-rotor aircraft.
