Netanyahu warns Iran of strikes for Syrian involvement

Netanyahu warns Iran of strikes for Syrian involvement

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif exchanged sharp words on Sunday at an global security conference in Munich, Germany, a week after the two countries engaged in a direct military confrontation in Syria.

Unlike in the other investigations ongoing against Binyamin Netanyahu, police will not be publicizing their recommendations for or against prosecution of the Prime Minister in the newest case he is said to be involved in - the "Bezeq Affair", also known as Case 4000 - due to the recent passage of a law that prevents police from doing so. You should. It's yours.

"Take back with you a message for the tyrants of Tehran: 'Do not test Israel's resolve,"' Netanyahu said.

Sergey Lavrov said on Monday in the presence of his Iranian counterpart in Kremlin sponsored conference that Soleimani's comment about "Israel's eradication" was "unacceptable".

"We observe such attempts in Syria, in Yemen and even around the development of the Palestinian problem, including recognizing Jerusalem as a sole capital of Israel", he said.

The remarks came just more than a week after the Israeli military engaged directly with Iranian forces in Syria, striking what Israel said were a number of Iranian targets after intercepting a drone that had penetrated its airspace, then losing an Israeli fighter jet under Syrian anti-aircraft fire. In response to the incursion, Israeli jets attacked the mobile command center from which it was operated, the army said.

Major General Nitzan Alon, from the Israeli Defence Force, today said: "2018 has the potential for escalation [of military conflict]".

The Treasury Department's action hits 14 Iranian officials and companies and businessmen from Iran, China and Malaysia, freezing any assets they have in the USA and banning Americans from doing business with them.

He emphasized the use of diplomacy and sanctions, but others at the conference said they feared misinterpretation or inflammatory rhetoric by the USA and North Korean leaders could lead to war.

"Lebanon has no belligerent intent on anybody, but watch out, we will defend ourselves", he said. Zarif, who took the stage an hour after Netanyahu, called the Israeli leader's presentation a "cartoonish circus".

Israel has been warning for years that Iran is seeking to entrench itself militarily in Syria.

"Every statement that has been made by President Trump that he wants to undermine this deal is a violation of the same paradigm", Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif said in response to McMaster's speech. He said Iran was "trying to establish a continuous empire from Iran to Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza".

Many at the conference believe the nuclear deal was a key topic during bilateral talks between U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and several leaders and ministers at the conference on Saturday.

In such a scenario, the four Western nations could create their own supplemental agreement to reimpose sanctions if the Iranians violated any of the new conditions that they would set. He told Army Radio that, as editor in 2013 and 2014, there had been pressure to provide favorable coverage of Netanyahu and his wife, Sara.
