Netanyahu on the Iranian presence in Syria and the security threat to Israel

“I made it clear to President Putin our resolute opposition to the consolidation of Iran and its proxies in Syria. We see Iran trying to build a military force, military infrastructure, with the intention to be based in Syria, including the attempt by Iran to build a seaport. All this has serious implications in terms of Israel’s security.”
