BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting on Wednesday that his nation will continue to take Iranian troops inside Syria.
“We are determined to continue our aggressive activity against Iran, which calls for our destruction, and against its attempts to establish itself militarily in Syria,” Netanyahu told Putin during their meeting in Moscow.
Furthermore, Netanyahu informed the Russian President that Iran was currently the greatest threat to stability and security in the Middle East region.
“The greatest threat to stability and security in the region comes from Iran and its proxies,” Netanyahu continued.
“I have counted 11 meetings between us since September 2016,” Netanyahu told the Russian President, adding that “the direct link between us is the deconfliction mechanism that prevented conflict between our armies and contributed to security and stability in the region.”
