BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated tonight that his country’s military will strike Iran anywhere inside Syria.

“We will continue to act against [Iran’s] intention to establish a military presence in Syria opposite us, not just opposite the Golan Heights but anywhere in Syria,” Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu and his administration have repeatedly vowed to prevent any Iranian presence inside of Syria, despite the fact Iran was invited by the government in Damascus.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman stated last week that it was in Assad’s best interest to kick Iran out of Syria, as they are creating more problems for Damascus in the long-run.

Syria’s Foreign Ministry responded to Lieberman’s remarks by issuing a statement that formally recognized Iran’s role inside Syria, adding that they will not be influenced by Israel.

ranix : again you really understand nothing. It’s a catch22! 1.) Khamenei decides to pull out IRGC : he’ll end very weakened and will lose face showing he bows to Israeli demands. 2.) He does the thickhead, IDF annihilates IRGC in Syria, 100% casualties like Hebo in 2006, Khamenei+IRGC are proven irrelevant, several thousands of coffins will be blamed on him, him and Soleimani look weak and pitiful at fight, the population hates the mullahs and IRGC won’t look fearful any more. So : – In both cases, Khamenei loses, except that in #2, people will die and it’s worst… Read more »

@ranix, Israeli have no reason to be afraid and seek for an excuse to strike. To provoke them is counter productive.

In fact, under Hague Convention (international law for war), they absolutely legally can start a war on Iran, Syria and Lebanon any time they want it… And the provocations make things worse. You’re 100% right Stern : they haven’t at all to be afraid : be it about military potential or economic potential, tey’d be absolutely able to defeat even a coalition with Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon in a 100% conventional pattern And do not count on Russia : no nuke power (but Pakistan) is enough foolish to start a war with another one… And Pakis rapidly backed… Read more »

Israel has done nothing in Syria. Ask Erdogan, Tamim al-Thani and MBS. Israel has not the funding to either fund a powerful army like Tsahal and fund a proxy-war at once : just consider that the failure that was the little “New Syrian Army” already costed $500millions to the Yanks! Saudis paid $1.1bln for 15,000 TOWs and 750 launchers… At the height of the SHTF, in shithadists and mercenaries there was more than 2x the manpower of IDF. Paying for a serious army over 7 years of operations, even w.o. air-force? Israel would be bankrupt for long! Moreover arming lunatics… Read more »

I would not say Israel has done nothing. But it was the Bani Saud and other “Friends of Syria” that paid for the terrorist oil war.

There are no good guys around, but anybody who followed the Israeli/US relations under Obongo can only totally notice Israel was TOTALLY opposed to the Syrian job. For sure, they don’t like Assad and it’s clear that Iran is looking for troubles with them, but between a regime led by someone clever and rational and shitheads from Nusra or ISIS even more bonkers than Hamas or Hezbollocks, Israel is clear : they prefer keeping Assad, which BTW is not a troublemaker. Not the case of some of his allies, but you can do, being Israeli, with having Assad as a… Read more »

Syria terrorists were paid by Bani Saud, Bani Thani, the Turkish Sultan and USland Monkeys.

And UScongress didn’t voted budget, while CIA budget couldn’t fund, so… I don’t dismiss the Obongo admin toxicity, but technically, they provided political+logistical+(hopefully deliberately sabotaged) training support, but CLEARLY didn’t paid for it! There aren’t so many able to fund such an organsed mess as you have the biggest CIA covert operation ever!!! Well, not so cover : they deliberately leaked a lot, this is obvious too, so did DIA and DoD. It’s obvious that many were against this mess in these agencies! Why? It stinks, it’s disgusting and being the mercenaries for… hum hum… we know who, while CIA… Read more »

Netanyahu’s talk is unbearable. He does not rule Syria.

Yes, absolutely! BUT! By allowing weapons transfers between Iran and UN-banned Hezb, then, even if there is no malice at Assad level as he really needed help, allowing a state and a non-governmental actor that de-facto declared war on Israel, he puts Syria under harm’s way as he makes Syria accomplice of serious violations on the Hague convention, so, FOR sure Bibi doesn’t rules Syria, but he absolutely has the right to reclaim this and even to use force to push this result!!! In fact, he could have done so from the start. I bet no one will get why… Read more »
