Israel renews threat to attack Iran targets in Syria
Israel has renewed its threat to attack Iranian military targets in Syria, after the two Muslim allies signed an accord on security cooperation.
“The IDF (Israel Defence Forces) will continue to take strong and determined action against Iran’s attempts to station forces and advanced weapons systems in Syria,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.
“No agreement between Syria and Iran will deter us; neither will any threat deter us,” he said at a ceremony naming Israel’s nuclear facilities after late president Shimon Peres.
Iran’s military attache to Damascus said on Tuesday that his country’s military advisers would remain in Syria under the defence agreement signed the previous day.
