DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:00 A.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu argued that Iran’s growing role in Syria poses a threat to Israel and the Middle East, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in Sochi, Wednesday.
Netanyahu stressed that “with joint efforts we are defeating Islamic State,” which he said “is a very important thing.”
He went on to note that “the bad thing is that where the defeated Islamic State group vanishes, Iran is stepping in.”
“We cannot forget for a single minute that Iran threatens every day to annihilate Israel,” Netanyahu concludes.
