Israel will continue to act in Syria against Iran, Netanyahu said

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran in the continued secret development of nuclear weapons and said that Israel will continue military actions against the Islamic Republic, to prevent its military entrenchment in Syria.

"We are determined, and Israel will not allow Iran to gain a foothold militarily in Syria. We have taken forceful military action against Iran in Syria and elsewhere as needed. Israel will continue to implement those actions necessary to prevent Iran from developing even a single terrorist and military front against Israel in Syria," - said the Prime Minister before meeting with US special envoy on Iran by Brian Hook on Tuesday in Jerusalem.

The Prime Minister also accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism in the middle East and the continuation of secret nuclear work was supported by a policy of pressure on the Islamic Republic, conducted by the United States.

"The campaign (President Donald) trump for maximum pressure on Iran is based on one simple principle: if Iran wants to achieve to be treated as a normal country, he should behave like a normal country. Iran has deliberately misled the international community, he lies constantly, does not fulfill its obligations, it continues its secret program to develop nuclear weapons and the means to deliver nuclear weapons," said Netanyahu during joint statements with the Hook, which was broadcast by Israeli television channels.
