BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:20 P.M.) – On Wednesday, Israel’s Channel 7 reported that the Israeli Defense Minister, Naftali Bennett, accused Iran of having 800 soldiers inside of Syria.

According to Channel 7’s report, Bennett also said he is determined to get the last Iranian forces out of Syria, something his predecessor was unable to do.

His alleged comments come just a day after the Israeli Air Force targeted the T-4 Military Airport in Syria, which currently houses Iranian and Russian troops in eastern Homs.

Since Bennett’s tenure as Minister of Defense, the Israeli military has targeted the Iranian forces and Hezbollah on a number of occasions in Syria, with several of these attacks taking place in Damascus and its surroundings.

Last night’s attack on the T-4 Airbase marked the first time in several months that Israel has bombed this site in the Homs Governorate.

So? They were invited and KSA/ Israel were not. Should have pondered that when you armed jihad proxies.Things did not go the way you plotted and now you’re in worse shape than before. Kill a few Iranians more will come. Another losing strategy. Israelis best learn to get along because Americans have soured on fighting your proxy wars. You can buy are politicians but they are not the ones fighting. We have our red line.

Only 800 left! Gosh, just a few more bombings and they’ll all return home in carboard boxes, just like Soleimani.

Aangesien u Iran so haat, moet u miskien daarheen gaan en veg, miskien sal die Pollock hier u medalje gee … mits u oorleef. Ek hoor hulle aanvaar huursoldate
