Ya’alon: Iran seeking to open front against Israel on Golan Heights

Iran is seeking to open a new front against Israel from the Syrian Golan Heights, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Monday, during a visit to the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to mark Space Week. He spoke a little over one week after an air strike, attributed by international media reports to Israel, struck and killed 12 Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Hezbollah operatives in Quneitra, Syria, near the Israeli border.

Ya’alon appeared to link Sunday’s air strike to Iran’s activities in Syria.

Visiting the defense company’s Missile and Satellites plant in Yehud together with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Ya’alon said IAI allows us to be "one of the few countries who are members of the limited club of states that have satellites in space, both for security and civilian needs."
