Netanyahu: We will continue to defend our interests in Syria

Israel will continue to defend its interests in Syria, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the fourth annual Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday, in advance of his scheduled meeting in Paris later this month with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“I have made it clear that we will not tolerate the use of Syrian territory to attack our positions in the Golan or anywhere else in Israel,” Netanyahu said.

He later spoke with Putin by telephone to express his condolences over the Metrojet plane that exploded in the Sinai desert earlier this month, en route from Egypt to Russia.
