(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu admitted on Tuesday that Israel operates in Syria. "We're operating in Syria from time to time in order to stop the country from becoming a front against Israel," he said at the Galilee Conference in Acre.
"We're operating against another terror front that Iran is trying to build in the Golan, and in order to thwart the transfer of particularly deadly weapons from Syria to Lebanon. We will continue doing this," the prime minister continued.
Apart from ambiguous hints or what could be better defined as an unintentional slip, this is the first time an Israeli official - particularly, the prime minister - declares that Israel does indeed hold military operations where Assad forces, different rebel groups, Hezbollah and Iran are all fighting.
