Butcher netanyahu: Iran Opens Third Front against israel on Golan
Iran is seeking to open a “third front” against the Zionist entity “using Hezbollah fighters on the Syrian Golan Heights, the Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.
Speaking at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting Netanyahu emphasized that Tehran’s attempts to entrench itself along borders with Occupied Palestine was one of the biggest emerging security threats facing the Jewish entity.
“Alongside Iran’s direct guidance of Hezbollah’s actions in the north and Hamas’s in the south, Iran is trying also to develop a third front on the Golan Heights via the thousands of Hezbollah fighters who are in southern Syria and over which Iran holds direct command,” he said.
Netanyahu, also dubbed as Bibi, said his ministers were briefed on “the security challenges developing around us, first and foremost Iran’s attempt to increase its foothold on Israel’s borders.”
A Zionist air strike inside the Syrian-controlled sector of the occupied Golan Heights on January 18 targeted a Hezbollah convoy, killing six fighters along with an Iranian General.
Netanyahu was still fuming over the ongoing talks between Iran and the international community about a nuclear agreement.
US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Geneva Sunday for renewed talks with his Iranian counterpart on Tehran’s nuclear program, after warning “significant gaps” remain ahead of a key deadline.
