Lieberman Urges US to Interfere: Assad Victorious
"Israeli" War Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday President Bashar al-Assad was winning Syria's war and urged the United States to weigh in as Damascus's Iranian and Hezbollah allies gain ground.
"I see a long international queue lining up to woo Assad, include Western nations, including moderate Sunnis. Suddenly everyone wants to get close to Assad," Lieberman told "Israeli" media in an interview.
Lieberman further stated: "We hope the United States will be more active in the Syrian arena and the Middle East in general.".
"We are faced with Russians, Iranians, and also the Turks and Hezbollah, and this is no simple matter to deal with, on a daily basis," the entity's military official said.
Lieberman did not elaborate on what actions he sought from the Donald Trump administration, under the pretext that "Israel" has been lobbying for reassurances that Iranian and Hezbollah forces will not be allowed to deploy near the Occupied Palestinian border or set up bases within Syria.
"The United States has quite a few challenges of its own, but as a trend-the more the United States will be active, the better it will be for "Israel"," Lieberman said.
