Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo the Zionist entity strike against Iranian efforts to entrench itself militarily throughout Syria, and not only along the border between Syria and the occupied territories.
Netanyahu told the weekly cabinet meeting over the weekend that he spoke with both men and discussed the region, with an emphasis on Syria, Israeli media reported.
The prime minister said he reiterated and made clear the principles guiding Israeli policy toward Syria. “First of all, Iran needs to withdraw from all of Syria,” he said.
“Second, we will take action – and are already taking action – against efforts to establish a militarily presence by Iran and its proxies in Syria, both close to the border and deep inside Syria. We will act against these efforts anywhere in Syria,” he said.
Diplomatic officials said that Netanyahu raises the issue of Iranian activity in Syria in all his conversations with foreign leaders.
