Bibi: IDF to Continue Anti-Iran Strikes in Syria

Stand for Israel reported to you that Russia not only blames Israel for the downing of one of its planes in Syria, but will also now be supplying anti-aircraft weaponry to the evil Assad regime. But despite these disturbing developments, The Jerusalem Post's Tovah Lazaroff tells us that Israel will keep "preventing Iran's military buildup in Syria as well as its attempts to deliver lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon":

The IDF will continue to strike at Iranian target in Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after Russia announced plans to transfer to Syria an advanced anti-missile system known as the S-300.

“Israel has been very successful in the last three years in preventing Iran's military buildup in Syria as well as its attempts to deliver lethal weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon,” Netanyahu said...

“Since the tragic events in the Syrian skies, I have spoken twice with President Putin, expressing deep sorrow about the loss of lives of the Russia crew on the plane, that was irresponsibly shot down by Syrian fire,” Netanyahu said...

“We will continue to act to prevent the Iranian military build up in Syria and to continue with the security coordination between the IDF and the Russian army,” Netanyahu said.

He added that he and Putin had agreed that representatives from the Israeli and Russian armies would meet soon to discuss continued coordination in Syria.

“We will do what is necessary to defend Israel's security,” Netanyahu said.
