Israel: 'Iran crossed red line' — Netanyahu on Israeli strikes in Syria

Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that 'Iran crossed a red line' explaining the recent Israeli air strikes on alleged 'Iranian targets' in Syria, speaking from West Jerusalem on Thursday. «The Iranian action failed due to our preparation both in the offensive and the defensive. No rocket landed in Israeli territory,» claimed Netanyahu. He also added that he «delivered a clear... Еще message to the Assad regime: Our action is directed against Iranian targets in Syria. But if the Syrian army acts against us, we will act against it. This is exactly what happened yesterday, batteries of the Syrian army fired surface to air missiles against us and therefore we struck them.» The Syrian military claimed 'dozens of missiles' were launched by Israel early Thursday. The reported target was the City of Baath in the Quneitra Governorate, close to the ceasefire lines with Israel. Israel's military said it was responding to rockets fired at its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, including one border post, by Iranian forces inside Syria. An Israel Defence Forces (IDF) statement stated a total of 20 rockets had been fired, some of which were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defence system, causing no casualties.
