Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Tel Aviv opposes the cease-fire agreement in southern Syria that the United States and Russia reached.
Netanyahu told reporters after his meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron that the Zionist entity was totally opposed to the cease-fire plan because it perpetuates the Iranian presence in the country.
Haaretz Israeli daily quoted a senior Israeli official as saying on condition of anonymity that the Zionist entity is aware of Iranian intensions to substantially expand its presence in Syria.
Iran is not only interested in sending advisers to Syria, the official said, but also in dispatching extensive military forces including the establishment of an airbase for Iranian aircraft and a naval base.
“This already changes the picture in the region from what it has been up to now,” the senior official said.
Netanyahu discussed the cease-fire deal with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson by phone Sunday night.
