Netanyahu Says Israel will Bomb Syria as Needed for its Security

Prime Minister tells Knesset: Israel will ”not accept” Iran’s permanent presence in Syria and will act against it.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made it clear to the US and Russia that Israel will continue carrying out military operations in Syria to ensure its security.

Speaking to a special session of the Knesset, Netanyahu said he told Washington and Moscow that Israel will act according to its “security needs.”

Netanyahu declared that Iran knows Israel will ”not accept” its permanent presence in Syria, adding ”I have clarified to our friends in Washington and our friends in Moscow that we will operate in Syria, including southern Syria, in accordance with our understanding and in accordance with our security needs.”

He made the statements after the US, Russia and Jordan negotiated the deal designed to reach a new cease-fire agreement in southern Syria that will create a “de-escalation zone” adjacent to Israel’s border, where Iran and Hezbollah, its terror proxy, will not be allowed to establish themselves.

Israel is apprehensive of the deal because Iran is allowed to establish itself 7km (4.5 miles) from it northern border, a distance Jerusalem insists is not satisfactory for its security needs.

Israeli Minister for Regional Cooperation Tzachi Hanegbi said Sunday that the agreement “does not answer Israel’s unequivocal demands that there will be no developments that bring Iranian or Hezbollah forces closer to Israel’s border with Syria in the north.”

“Israel has no objection to a (peace) agreement in Syria, but we are firmly opposed to such an agreement in which Iran and its proxies will be left with a military presence in Syria,” Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin in May.

While Israel has refrained from directly intervening in the Syrian conflict, it has carried out strikes against Hezbollah, Syrian and Iranian targets in Syria to neutralize immediate threats to its security or retaliate against infringements on its sovereignty.

Israel has long warned about the involvement of it archenemy Iran, and its terror proxy Hezbollah, in Syria.

It has expressed concerns of a “Shiite corridor” with land links from Iran to Lebanon, providing free movement for terrorists and weapons across the region.

What happened when Egyptian troops were permitted to mass unchallenged on the border cannot be repeated with Iran. Not with todays weapons. Same with Hezbollah. I cannot believe the American people have forgotten 9-ll. ISIS certainly has not. Every act against Israel or America is celebrated as I write. For either America, or Israel to back down from their commitment to each other would be comparable to Cain and Abel. Obama schooled in hatred by Rev Wright and the Nation of Islam crossed a line that cannot be crossed again. There can only be peace through demonstrated strength against an enemy that wants your homeland removed from the map.

President Trump is publicly livid during his campaign about the terrible nuclear deal Obama made with Iran which included the economically salivating Europeans and Russians. He said if elected he would rip up the "deal" but yet he does nothing about it. Then the president once in office makes a deal of his own with the Russians and Jordanians??? to allow Iran and its terrorist proxy Hezbollah, both now established in Syria, both who have sworn to wipe Israel off the map, to come as close as 4.5 miles from the Israeli border. My question is, was John Kerry on that negotiating team?

Well it was Israel who took out Hussein nuke site near Baghdad, Syria site and who tool care of Iranian nuke scientists, so it is rumored and created the worm that took Iran back a few steps, so why not Israel, the tiny nation with more Chutzpah than the world put together, take Assad or whoever they need to out.

Yaweh has blessed Israel and continues to. Brevity, Honor and Integrity is thy name Israel.

Target and destroy key Syrian infrastructure. The mullah operational bases inside of Syria/Lebanon must also be destroyed.

Iran is in a mess at the moment. Even its proxies in Lebanon and Yemen are deserting en masse to the KSA side, which hasn't happened since the early 2000s after which the OEF and Arab Spring calmed things down on the Shia terror front.
