BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 P.M.) – Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Syria “will be held accountable” for the alleged actions of its allies, singling out Iran and Hezbollah, in a speech at the annual Herzliya Conference, held by the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in the coastal Israeli city of Herzliya, Thursday.

“I warn the Syrian government that is encouraging them, both Hezbollah and Iran, from turning Syria to a front base against Israel,” Lieberman said.

The defence minister went on to say that Israel has “no intention to initiate any military action,” before adding that “when we have to act, we will not hesitate to act.”

Lieberman also commented on negotiations between the US and Russia with regards to safe-zones in Syria. “I hope they will reach an agreement, but this fact alone does not prevent us to act in order to secure the Israeli interests,” he said.

Have you red the article? He’s just warning that, as both HB and Khamenei (who leads IRGC) publicly vow to destroy Israel, if they don’t mess with the fact they help Assad to liquidate the neo-jihadists as it’s clear that having AQ or IS ruling Syria would be worst than Hamas in Gaza and well, Israel wasn’t far to launch a massive air campaign in Syria and not at all to oust Assad but to liquidate IS/AQ!

In Lebanon, over 15 years at trying to take over the country until Hafez decided to oust them once and for good, PLO was responsible of twice as much death as Israel in 69 years! In 2 waves of purges against opponents into Iran, Khomeini also killed twice as much as Israel.

It’s evident that your nothing but a Zionist troll trying to defend the evil of Israel. How much do they pay you, because we Americans want our tax dollars back from you. Your Greater Israel project is failing, because you need Syria to collapse before you start the same c**p with Iran. We the people are on to Israel evil plan.
