Israel Vows to ‘Eliminate’ Assad if He Keeps Letting Iran Operate From Syria

Sputnik – 07.05.2018

Israel has repeatedly voiced concern over alleged Iranian military presence in Syria and claimed that the Islamic Republic has been building a base in the country, while Tehran has strongly refuted the accusations. However, Iran has admitted sending military advisors to Syria in order to help Damascus fight terrorists.

Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz has alleged that Israel was willing to “eliminate” Syrian President Bashar Assad if the latter continued to “allow Iran to operate” from his country.

“It’s unacceptable that Assad sits quietly in his palace and rebuild his regime while allowing Syria to be turned into a base for attacks on Israel,” Steinitz said as quoted by Ynet.

The minister claimed that while so far Israel hasn’t gotten involved in the Syrian conflict, it is willing to topple the Syrian government.

“If Assad lets Iran turn Syria into a military base against us, to attack us from Syrian territory, he should know that will be the end of him,” Steinitz said.

This development takes place only a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that his country won’t tolerate alleged Iranian military presence on its northern borders, even if it means resorting to military actions.

Netanyahu claimed that in recent months the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had been sending modern weaponry to Syria, including drones, air defense systems and ground-to-surface missiles.

Earlier on April 9, a pair of Israeli F-15 warplanes carried out an airstrike against the T-4 airbase in Syria, killing seven Iranians operating in the country.

Iranian authorities promised a response to this attack, prompting Israeli media to speculate that Iran may carry out a missile strike against Israel from sites inside Syria.

Despite Israeli and US claims, Iran has denied having military presence in Syria, although, admitted sending military advisors to help Damascus fight terrorism.

  2. Isn’t the USA building a miltary base inside Israel? Iran which isn’t building a base in Syria, should offer to continue to desist from so doing in trade for Israel disallowing a US base in Israel. m\\

  4. Who could blame Syria for wanting to defend itself from terrorist neighbor Israel? Not I. Syria hasn’t done anything to them, but as always, Israel twists the narratrive so that they are always the premiere victims.

  5. “The minister claimed that while so far Israel hasn’t gotten involved in the Syrian conflict, it is willing to topple the Syrian government”.
    Israel HAS carried out Aerial attacks on Syria, whilst the Israel and American backed Mercenaries have done most of the fighting, and tried to remove Mr Assad. But, thanks to the Russian and Iranian allies of Syria, Syria is still a liberated country. AND Israel is most unhappy that THEIR scheming plan to take over Syria has failed dramatically.
    Too bad Israel. It’s no wonder that their are SO MANY “Anti-Semites” in the World. Maybe THEY”RE RIGHT, and You’re wrong.
    Go home, and look after those nice Palestinians…….

  6. Satayahu is an effing psychotic who has cleverly (his predecessors always paving the way) maneuvered himself to occupy the pinnacle of power in Zionist-Occupied USA. Patriots: lament.

    • American Patriots are not allowed to call for USA Sovereignty over Israel, because that would mean They were Anti-Semites………
