Israel to attack Syrian chem weapons movement capability?

This is from a Fox news report that claims that Israel is preparing for possible military action against Syria's chemical weapons capability (threats like that have been bouncing back and forth all week).
Sources close to the Israel Defense Force told FoxNews.com soldiers have been put on standby and are ready to move, while civilian demand for gas masks has jumped 66 percent over the last few weeks from 2,200 to 3,700 per day. The fears center around the prospect of Hezbollah getting Syrian chemical weapons as the Assad regime shows imminent signs of collapse.


“It appears the IDF may seek to eliminate Syria’s ability to transport the weapons to proxy forces but not to eliminate the actual weapons themselves by striking at storage facilities," Idan Kweller, political correspondent for Israel Army Radio, told FoxNews.com. "Israel’s main interest is to ensure the weapons are not passed on to the likes of Hezbollah in south Lebanon.”
I have not seen any indication that the IDF is up to anything on this front, although I assume that we have lots of intelligence officers in Syria. Hmmm.

That makes no sense. instead of destroying the weapons which is entirely within our ability, we're going to instead try to provoke hezballah into an all out summer war, meanwhile the weapons fall into who's hands? What a stupid idea.
