Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted a video on his Facebook page, explaining his policy on Iran as well as the Syrian conflict.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Israel will not allow Iran to have military presence in Syria or own nuclear weapons, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed shortly after an alleged Israeli strike on a target in Syria.
“Let me reiterate Israel’s policy. We will not allow regime hell-bent on annihilation of the Jewish state to acquire nuclear weapons, we will not allow that regime to entrench itself militarily in Syria as it seeks to do for the express purpose of eradicating our state,” Netanyahu said in a video message posted on his Facebook on Saturday.
According to media reports, a military position in Syria underwent a missile attack on Friday. According to some reports, the target may have been an Iranian base and several Iranian troops could be injured in the attack, allegedly carried out by Israel.
Netanyahu’s video was reportedly taped on Thursday and is expected to be shown in full on Sunday at the Brookings Institution’s annual Saban Forum in Washington.
