Refusing to confirm strike on Syria, Netanyahu vows to keep weapons from Hezbollah

In an interview with CBS television, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his policy of keeping dangerous arms from reaching Hezbollah in Lebanon. While refusing to confirm or deny reported Israeli involvement in the attack on a Syrian missile depot on July 5, Netanyahu said Israel would stand by its policy of preventing the transfer of dangerous weapons to Hezbollah and other terrorist groups.

Israel has repeatedly maintained it would take action to prevent “game-changing weapons”, including advanced guided missiles, from reaching hostile militant groups. Following an Israeli airstrike on Damascus in May, President Assad vowed to retaliate if Israel struck Syrian territory again, but has not commented on the July attack.
