(Worthy News) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran is attempting to establish a military presence on the border with Israel along the Golan Heights.

Netanyahu was speaking at the dedication of a restored 1,500-year-old synagogue on the Golan Heights. Israel captured the area from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War, developing and ultimately annexing it in December 1981.

"Israel on the Golan Heights is a guarantee for stability in the surrounding area," he told participants at the dedication. "Israel on the Golan Heights is a solid reality based on ancient rights. Israel on the Golan Heights is a fact that the international community must recognize and as long as it depends on me, the Golan Heights will always remain under Israeli sovereignty because otherwise we would have Iran and Hezbollah on the shores of the Sea of Galilee."
