Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the IDF will continue to attack Iranians in Syria. Earlier, an Israeli commander said it conducted attacks in the country on nearly a daily basis and supplied arms to Syrian rebels.
“I’m telling you, get out of there fast. We won’t stop attacking,” the prime minister said on Tuesday morning during a ceremony, in which he appointed Aviv Kochavi as the new chief of staff of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
Netanyahu also rejected statements by an Iranian official, who said Iran only sent military advisers to Syria and not regular fighting troops.
“They always lie. They are lying with that and they are lying when they say their attempt to launch a satellite into space failed,” he said.
The Israeli leader was referring to the remarks made on Monday by Iranian General Hassan Firoozabadi, who said its “military advisers” will say in Syria as long as required to defeat terrorists, and an announcement on Tuesday by Iranian Communications Minister Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi, who said Tehran’s attempt to place a satellite into orbit had failed.

Israel is apparently drifting away from its usual policy of neither confirming nor denying military operations in Syrian territory.

Last week, Gadi Eisenkot, Kochavi’s predecessor as chief of staff of the IDF, acknowledged that the Israeli military had been attacking targets in Syria on nearly a daily basis and engaged “thousands of targets” in the neighboring country.

He also said that the Israeli government had been supplying arms and other support to rebel forces in Syria, confirming earlier media reports about the practice.

So basically the Israelis are threatening their neighbour and illegally supplying rebels with supplies and weapons while telling same neighbour whose friends they can keep. What can I say but that’s typical of the arrogant, criminal Zionist state that has the backing of the similar criminal USA.

Actually, they confirmed they used some Syrian groups e.g. Syrian-Druzes’ Golan Knights and another smaller as ‘border guards’ patrolling the UNDOF demilitarised zone in order to avoid Nusra, Daesh and other shithadists to send kamikazes through the border. AFAIK, these groups never engaged into fights against SAA and all filled in reconciliation with Syrian govt as soon as SAA started to wipe-out the border area. Iran arms, funds, trains etc, groups like Hamas, PIJ or Hezbollah who fight against Israel and they do this for decades, same about Syria, Hamas even has shot several hundreds of Syrian made M-302 rockets… Read more »

YOU are the loser! Under the Shah, you needed about 320 Rials for one US dollar, now the legal exchange rate is around 45-50k Rials for 1 USD and the real-life one is more between 100k and 150k on free market. Since my toilets are in need of a new wall-paper, I consider using your Rial bills for this purpose since wallpaper is more expensive than your bills here! Even 3rd world countries like Namibia have a better GDP per capita than you, in fact, even the Fatah-land and Hamastan squats in Israel do better… Meanwhile, Israel’s GDP per capita… Read more »
