UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the background of Israeli bombing of Syria on Saturday called on the international community to “act immediately” to prevent an attack by Iran.
Earlier, the Israeli military said it had launched airstrikes near Damascus against Iranian targets in order to thwart Iran’s attack drone attacks across its country. According to them, the target of the bombing was the facilities of the Iranian unit Al-Quds and Shiite detachments in the village of Aqrab, southeast of Damascus.
The Israeli military also allows for the possibility of losses among the personnel of the Iranian forces and Shiite troops at the facilities attacked by them.
The chairman of the Iran’s expediency council, Mohsen Rezai, has denied the Israeli military’s allegations of airstrikes on Iran’s targets, calling them false. He added that the actions of the United States and Israel in Syria and Iraq are contrary to international law.
“Israel will continue to defend its security in any way necessary. I urge the international community to act immediately so that Iran stops these attacks,” Netanyahu said.
On Monday, a security cabinet meeting was held to discuss tensions on the northern borders of Israel, as well as the latest shelling from the Gaza Strip. Information about what decisions were made during the meeting was not received.
