(Worthy News) - Israel’s U.N. ambassador is accusing Iran of attempting to turn Syria into “the largest military base in the world” to destabilize the region, threaten Israel and “terrorize the entire free world.”

Danny Danon told the Security Council Thursday that classified information he was releasing showed that 82,000 fighters are currently under Iranian authority in Syria.

He said the fighters include 60,000 Syrians, 9,000 members of Hezbollah, 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guard members and “10,000 members of violent Shia militias recruited from across the Middle East, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. Israel is desperate for the U.S. to keep a presence in Syria. Not that it wouldn't dissuade Caliph Erdogan from continuing the genocide of the Kurdish people, which began in the early 1900's. But would the U.S. mission in Syria just be to prevent a genocide or could they do an 'about-face' and fly missions into Iran at a moment's notice?
