TDN World Desk:Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday accused Iran of planning attacks against the Jewish state and said everything possible would be done to prevent them.
“Iran’s aggression in our region, and against us, continues,” Netanyahu said.
On a visit to an army base near the border with conflict-ravaged Syria the Israeli Prime Ministere made this remark. Currently his political life is under threat as his countries attorney general indicted him on Thursday of bribery, moneylaundering and breach of trust.
He was speaking on the day US General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was in the country to meet his Israeli counterpart Aviv Kohavi.
The two generals discussed “operational questions and regional developments”, an army statement said.
Speaking on the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights, Netanyahu said “we are taking all necessary actions to prevent Iran from entrenching here in our region.”
“This includes the activity necessary to thwart the transfer of lethal weaponry from Iran to Syria, whether by air or overland.
“We will also take action to thwart Iran’s effort to turn Iraq and Yemen into bases for launching rockets and missiles” at Israel, he added.
Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit announced Thursday he had charged Netanyahu with bribery, fraud and breach of trust, prompting speculation that the end of the premier’s decade-long tenure was nigh.
