BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday sent a warning message to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

During a press conference in Jerusalem with the U.S/ Special Envoy on Iran, Brian Hook, Netanyahu expressed Tel Aviv’s intention to prevent Iran from militarily positioning itself in Syria, stressing that Israel “has repeatedly taken strong military measures against Iran and its allies in Syria and other places” “.

Netanyahu addressed “the mullahs of Tehran” by saying that Israel will continue to take these measures, “as they are necessary to prevent you from establishing another terrorist front and another army operating against Israel in Syria.”

He continued: “As I say to Bashar al-Assad: You are risking the future of your country and your regime. Israel will not allow Iran to establish its military presence in Syria.”

Israel has warned the Syrian President before about allowing Iran to embed in Syria; however, Damascus maintains that all Iranian advisers are welcome inside the country.

Tehran has further responded to these warnings in the past by pointing out that they are inside Syria at the invitation of the government.
