Netanyahu vowed to keep the military presence of Iran in Syria
Israel will deter the Iranian military presence in Syria and will do everything to prevent the establishment of bases there, said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Iran’s intentions in Syria is completely clear, they want to unite Tehran and Tartus and create one state. I have long know about it. Israel will continue to contain Iran in its attempts to penetrate and to continue military action in Syria”, — quotes “RIA Novosti” quoting from the statement of Mr Netanyahu at the Munich security conference.
“Iran is trying to tighten the noose around our necks, and we will do all that is necessary, not only against the intermediaries but also from Iran,” he added.
We will remind, in Syria in fact, there is a new front. Israeli aircraft carried out the most large-scale operation for the time of the Syrian war, directed against the government forces and the Iranian military facilities. In the process, Israel for the first time in 35 years, lost military plane shot down by Syrian air defense.
