Netanyahu tells top Knesset panel that Iranian weapons transfers to Hezbollah have decreased since downing of Russian spy-plane in September
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that Russia alone does not have enough leverage to get Iran out of Syria. Speaking at the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Netanyahu said that Israel has acted in Syria since the downing of the Russian spy-plane in September.
“Our spy-planes continue to fly and collect information,” he said. “From the information we have, the amount of Iranian weapons transfers to Hezbollah through Syria has significantly dropped since the downing of the Russian plane.”
People present at the Knesset panel session said Netanyahu hinted that there is a need for another country to get involved in order to get Iran out of Syria.
According to Netanyahu, relations between Israel and Russia are “good.”
