Israel ready to act on Syria weapons, warns Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told the BBC that Israel has a right to prevent weapons from falling into the wrong hands in Syria.

He said that if terrorists seized weapons such as anti-aircraft and chemical weapons they could be "game changers" in the region.

Israel has said its policy is not to get involved in the Syrian conflict.

Mr Netanyahu has given an exclusive interview to the BBC's Lyse Doucet.
