BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon told Fox News during an interview on Tuesday that his country is ready to attack the Iranians inside Syria at any time.
“The Iranians are not going anywhere,” Danon told Fox News, claiming that “they are deploying more forces into Syria.”
When asked about the security of Israel’s northern border, Danon said Iran wants “to take over Syria. They want to push everybody out of Syria.”
“We cannot allow it; we will not allow it. We will attack anytime we see a threat to Israel in Syria,” Danon continued.
“We will attack the Iranians; we have proved it in the past,” he said.
Danon added that the U.S.’ withdrawal from Syria will not have much of an effect on Israel’s policy in Syria because they will continue to act against any threat to their state.
