Netanyahu confirms latest Israeli strike in Syria

US Vice President Mike Pence speaks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jersualem

Netanyahu has said in recent weeks that Israel has carried out hundreds of attacks in Syria over the past several years and would ramp up its fight following the planned withdrawal of us troops from the country.

"We operate every day, including yesterday, against Iran and its efforts to entrench itself in the region", Netanyahu said before boarding a flight to Poland for a conference focused on Tehran's activities in the Middle East. The Israeli air force had carried out hundreds of airstrikes in Syria, targeting Iranian sites to halt Iran's attempts to gain a military foothold in the country. It referred to a meeting between Netanyahu and Oman's foreign affairs minister Yusuf bin Alawi. In October, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Sultantate of Oman, marking the first time in 22 years that an Israeli prime minister has visited Oman.

Vice President Mike Pence is leading the USA delegation, accompanied by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House advisor Jared Kushner. "This is a new era for the future, and for prosperity for all the nations".

Iran has denounced the conference, which began Wednesday, as an American anti-Iran "circus" and Russian Federation said it would not attend.

Netanyahu and bin Alawi are now in Warsaw to attend a so-called "Ministerial to Promote a Future of Peace and Security in the Middle East", which is being co-organized by the U.S. and Poland.


The Jerusalem Post reports that, although Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar have all sent representatives to Warsaw for the conference, Palestinian Authority officials are boycotting the USA -sponsored confab due to the Trump administration's 2018 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and its relocation of its Israeli embassy to that capital.

Walla reported that sources in the security establishment stated that the issue would be raised by Netanyahu when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next week.

US Vice President Mike Pence is leading Washington's delegation, which includes US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, who is also Donald Trump's son-in-law.

Germany and France decided not to send their foreign ministers, while the European Union's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, is also not attending because of scheduling issues, an EU official told Reuters.

Israel and many Sunni Arab countries, from Egypt and Jordan to the Gulf states of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates, all recognize the Iranian regime as their biggest geopolitical threat in the region.
