Netanyahu gave red line to Putin on Syria intervention
Netanyahu met with Obama earlier on Monday and asked for an increase in US defense aid to Israel from $3 billion to $5 billion a year between 2017 and 2027.
WASHINGTON — Meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow in September, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would respond “strongly” to any effort by Iran to establish an offensive corridor on Syria’s border with the Golan Heights despite Russian military operations nearby, he said on Monday night.
Speaking to the conservative American Enterprise Institute, which honored him at a black tie gala with its highest award, Netanyahu said that Israel’s primary goal is to prioritize its defense threats, and to defeat or mitigate them accordingly
Those begin with Iran, which— according to the premier, in conversation with the institute’s Danielle Pletka— is creating new proxies in both hemispheres on a bimonthly basis.
“Giving Israel the tools” to defend itself, Netanyahu told the gala of two thousand at the city’s National Building Museum, requires a drop in the bucket in US aid compared to the cost of Washington’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
