BEIURT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – The Israeli Defense Minister, Naftali Bennett, said that the Israeli army aims to remove Iran from Syria within the next 12 months.

Bennett made the remarks during an interview with the Jerusalem Post on Friday morning for which he made clear that the Israeli army set a specific and important goal, that within 12 months Iran should leave Syria.

The Israeli Minister of Defense stated that Iran has nothing to look for in Syria, saying: “They are not our neighbors, and they have no reason to settle with Israel, and we will remove them from there in the near future.”

Bennett pointed out that “most of the targets in the past, they were convoys that entered Syria from Iran through Iraq, then to the heights of the Golan Heights or Lebanon, then the targets are now completely different”, without giving further details.

In a related context, the Israeli Defense Minister  had previously stated that he had prepared a plan with the head of the caretaker government, Benjamin Netanyahu, to attack the Gaza Strip.

This comment from Bennett came after a fierce exchange of hostilities along the Gaza border between Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).

Sorry, I didn’t know that Israel’s MoD was in charge of Syria’s internal matters.
Syria, as a sovereign independent country can invite, whom-so-ever they want into their country. Israel is being underhanded. They should just declare they are at (low level) war with Syria and have been during the past 9 years directly and through their support of jihadis) and that would allow the Syrians the right of response (and the Russians as well) without the Israelis’ backer, the USA, then disingenuously claiming that Syria is the aggressor should they responded to the recent Israelis attacks.

Let’s call a spade a spade. it is becoming more clear everyday that Nations Turkey and Israel are the masterminds behind the invasion of Syria. Turks wants Aleppo and Israel wants all resources of entire Golan. Both Israel and Turkey believe they own all the land from Euphrates to the sea.

Actually, Israel wouldn’t care about Iranian troops in Syria if Iran wasn’t leading a proxy war on Israel by arming terrorist groups to attack their country for decades, e.g. PIJ (Palestinian Islamic Jihad); Hamas (Muslim Brotherhood, banned in Syria, Russia, Egypt, KSA, UAE and Bahrain) or Hezbollah. Backing foreign militias to attack a country IS A CASUS-BELLI, read Hague Convention about this, thus Iranian militaries or paramilitaries are legitimate targets for Israel in Syria or elsewhere, period! It’s not about Iran helping Syria, it’s about Iran helping terrorists, some of them attacking Israelis or Jews at worldwide level, attacks even… Read more »

Israel declared independence from the UK and as soon they did, the Arab-League launched what they themselves called a “war of extermination” with a 7 nations army… and lost it! Thus, they managed to occupy Judea-Samaria and Gaza until being ousted in 1967 after having started another illegal war…
Actually, Israel did a mistake in 1967 : not expelling the populations the Arab League had settled in Israel.
Practise what you preach! Read about history!

It’d take them 6 minutes to make Iran history, in fact, they have what it takes to make 8 millions km² a radioactive parking lot. Never heard about the Samson Option? If they go underground, be ready to witness many many others being dragged to hëll at the same time…
Hopefully, we’re unlikely to have our a$$es on their line the day it happens : we’ve made them the nuclear power they are 🙂

Another brilliant move….predictable….expected…..pre approved by Trump….victims of their own demise….the whining Khazars banging their rattles….throwing their binkies….screaming in their cribs…..it gets tiring listening to their threats….their never ending protestations…..time for their nappy…..put them down….pull the covers over their heads….it’s time for sleep….the cute cuddly things must be exhausted…..

The Khazar narrative is long proven to be a total bias!
Moreover, if this was true instead of a bunch of lies, only the Ashkenazim would be concerned, and they’re a minority : more than the half of Israelis are Mizrahis whose ancestors never left the Levant, then you have the Sephardis, the N-African Jews, in other terms, you’ve ridiculed yourself parroting a totally debunked crapaganda.

Since ISIS founder Zarqawi hid in Iran in 2001-2002 before being smuggled to Iraq by Soleiman’s Quds-Force, it’s Iran which created ISIS. Doesn’t ISIS means Iranian Secret Intelligence Service?

LOL. Where do you get all this absolute rubbish from? Yeah sure, Iran created the vehemently anti-shia ISIS. You are a complete joke.

*yawn*. they’ve been saying this for years now. Since 2011 the casualties of Iran and the Shia Militias have been only 34 from Israeli strikes. Whereas only in 2018 alone with one modified ATGM strike hamas killed 29 Israeli soldiers including high ranking folks in a bus.

The IDF only harasses, and never kills Iranians and the Shiite militias. Because they can strike back viciously…can’t say that about the Syrian Army though. They have been on the receiving end of Israeli airforce raids in Syria.

IRGC and Hezbollah are Shia fanatics and both practise taqiyya (deception). Actually, they don’t publish their losses or highly minimise these… Do you really think several hundreds of air strikes did only 34 deaths, especilly while blasting arms depots? Seriously? Any idea of the effect of an arms depot blast with e.g. 1000 tons of explosives? It’s similar to a 1 kiloton “briefcase” nuke minus the radiations! Some others estimate that IDF may have killed about 2500 IRGC members. To be frank I have no idea about the exact body count, but it’s clear that 2500 sounds more realistic than… Read more »

The clever thing Bennet could do : propose to Assad to have IDF providing a massive aerial support to SAA in Idlib for the removing of IRGC and stopping any support to Hezbollah, PFLP, etc… Let’s be clear : IDF is capable to demolish 90-95% of HTS and Turkish proxies combat potential into 48-72 hours. In fact, was I Assad, I’d have sought such an agreement with Bibi for long because, hey, it’s the best strategy to go! Moreover, Turkey provides support to Hamas, so it’d be a good lesson… Gosh, Macchiavelli would have headaches was he here to watch… Read more »

The devil has a common point with god : both do not exists… And Assad has killed more Syrians in 9 years than Israel has killed Arabs over 72 years… BTW, Khamenei also has killed more Iranians than Israel has killed Arabs… Practise what you peach, go back to your history lessons : you missed a LOT of these! The best thing Syria could do would be either becoming neutral if not allying with Israel! Don’t you know that the enemies of yesterday usually becomes the best friends of tomorrow? Just think about the relations between Germany and France! Moreover,… Read more »
