Israeli Official: Our Goal Is To Push Iran Out Of Syria


A senior political source participated in the meeting between Prime Minister BInyamin Netanyahu, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and Russian Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov, at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem Sunday evening.

The meeting lasted more than two hours. “This is an important meeting at a significant time in which we focused on the fine details of the Iranian presence and activity in Syria while presenting intelligence maps and explaining our policy of driving Iran out of Syria,” the source said.

“It was made clear again that we would not accept Iranian consolidation in Syria, not near the border, and not in the 100-kilometer strip that the Russians are talking about and committing to,” the senior official said. “We said that there is long-range weapons placed beyond this area and all these forces have to leave Syria. Russia has considerable capabilities to deal with this, because it is a very significant factor within Syria.”
