PM Netanyahu confirms latest Israeli strikes on Iranian targets in Syria
Before heading to a conference in Warsaw Poland, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that Israel attacked targets in Syria Monday. Netanyahu stated that Israel is acting against Iranian regional efforts on a daily basis.
“This is a very important international conference in Warsaw. The focus is Iran. This brings together Israel, the US, and countries in and beyond the region. There will be interesting meetings there.
Iran threatens us on the 40th anniversary of the revolution. They threatened to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, and I said that they would not succeed but if they try then I repeat that this will be the last anniversary of the revolution that they celebrate, this regime”.
“We operate very many means and very many elements against the Iranian aggression, against their attempt to arm themselves with nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Time and again we have exposed their terrorist actions in Europe. Time and again we have blocked their attempts to entrench in Syria, day after day”.
Syrian media on Monday evening said that Israeli tanks shelled multiple Assad regime positions near the border town of Quneitra on the Golan Heights.
According to Arabs reports, two members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps were killed and 9 wounded in the strikes.
“Our relations with countries in the region, except Syria, are all very good and descriptions to the effect that we have rifts with them are the opposite of reality. The reality is that these relations are becoming tighter. I do not say that they are all open; they are not all open. But part of this is open and how do you say? It is possible to see this above the ground; it is possible to see it in the air.
I think that the holding of this conference in which Israel, the US, various countries around the world and from the region sit down in one place, in one hall and discuss one topic which, in my opinion, is the most important for our national security, is a very important achievement. I very much appreciate the American initiative, which I have been associated with and party to for many months.”
Wednesday’s conference co-hosted by the U.S. and Poland will focus on Mideast peace and security. Around 80 countries are participating, but Iran was not invited.
