Netanyahu Claims “Israel” Must Keep Up Syria Strikes
Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he told Russia’s vice premier in talks Tuesday that his occupation entity must continue to hit hostile targets in Syria, despite Moscow’s decision to equip Damascus with advanced air defense missiles.
Netanyahu said at a news conference that he told Maxim Akimov in talks in occupied al-Quds that the “Israeli” regime would continue to fight what it claims are “Iranian attempts to entrench itself militarily in Syria and channel advanced weaponry to Hezbollah.”
Despite the delivery of the S-300 air defense systems to the Syrian military, the Zionist entity was committed to continue its “legitimate activity in Syria against Iran and its proxies, which state their intention to destroy us,” Netanyahu claimed.
It was his first publicized meeting with a senior Russian official since the downing of a Russian plane during an “Israeli” airstrike in Syria.
Fifteen Russians were killed in the September 17 incident that Moscow blamed on “Israel.”
In response, Moscow announced new measures to protect its military in Syria, including equipping Damascus with S-300 air defense systems.
