breaking world news iran syria

(Worthy News) - Iran will keep military forces in Syria, the head of the elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday, defying Israeli threats that they might be targeted if they do not leave the country.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that Israeli forces would continue to attack Iranians in Syria unless they quickly get out of there.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will keep its military advisers, revolutionary forces and its weapons in Syria," Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the Revolutionary Guards top commander, was quoted as saying by the semi-official ISNA news agency. Jafari called Netanyahu's threats "a joke", and warned that the Israeli government "was playing with (a) lion's tail." [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]

  1. if Iran did not want to hurt Israel, Israel could afford to be nicer to Iran. A government has to protect its law abiding people or why even have a government. Israel has to protect its people from those who want to do harm.
