As cease-fire mostly holds in Syria, PM says Israel won’t tolerate 2nd terrorist front on Golan

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the ceasefire that mostly took hold in Syria on Saturday, but warned that Israel’s red lines remain there: it will not accept the establishment of a second terrorist front on the Golan Heights.

“We welcome efforts to achieve a stable, long-term, real ceasefire in Syria,” Netanyahu said at the start of Sunday’s weekly cabinet meeting. “Anything that will stop the horrible slaughter there is important, first of all from a humanitarian perspective.”

At the same time, he said, “it must be clear that any agreement in Syria must include ending Iranian aggression against Israel from Syrian territory.”
