Israel has warned Russia about sending arms to Syria.
Justice Minister Tzipi Livni has spoken on Channel Two television's Meet the Press to condemn shipments of arms from Russia that she said may be used against Israel.
She said: "These are not just any weapons, they are tie-breakers, and that's why there is a responsibility with all world powers, certainly Russia, not to supply such arms."
Ms Livni said Israel would defend itself should arms from Russia end up with Hezbollah.
She went on: "If Hezbollah and Iran are supporting Syria and propping the Assad regime up, then why shouldn't it transfer those weapons to Hezbollah? You don't even have to be an intelligence expert, it makes sense that they will. If you ask the Russians if these weapons will be passed on to Hezbollah, they will say: 'No, that is against Russian law.' But it's not certain that Russian law is something they will respect. So if Hezbollah can put its hands on them, it will."
Some weapons being used in the two-year-old civil war in Syria between President Assad's forces and rebel fighters are known to have come from abroad.
