On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with eastern European officials behind closed doors. However, the microphones in the room of the private meeting were accidentally active. As a consequence, several journalists gained access to some exclusive confessions. Therefore, they received confirmation from the Israeli leader for unofficial assaults of Iranian convoys that took place dozens of times.
Journalists Received Confirmation that Israeli Did Play an Active Part in Syrian War
Israel used to display a neutral position in regards to the Syrian civil war. In the meantime, the Israeli air force was enveloped in suspicions of launching airstrikes against Hezbollah. This is an Islamist militant organization from Lebanon that works in the direction of the regime imposed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Therefore, officials of Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Slovakia together with journalists that were not in the room heard Prime Minister’s statement. He claimed that his country was directly involved in the onslaught against Iranian shipments that carried weapons to Hezbollah.
“I told [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, when we see them transferring weapons to Hezbollah, we will hurt them. We did it dozens of times.”
Despite these military orders, Israel was one of the top countries that offered aid to local Syrian fighters. On Wednesday, officials stated that one of world’s humanitarian operations “Good Neighbors” offered support to around 200,000 civilians located at Golan Heights on Syrian soil. Their help consisted of hundreds of tons of food and medicine, 50 tons of clothing, and 450,000 liters of gasoline.
Israeli Leader Netanyahu Is Not Content with How EU Works with His Country
On the other hand, the unofficial confession of the Israeli leader was full of criticism directed at the European Union. Netanyahu shared his views with global officials which concerned the idea that Europe might crumble. That’s because the only international association that interacts with Israel is also undermining this country.
Therefore, Netanyahu believes that EU has to show same technological cooperation with them as Russia, India, and China do. However, he found Trump administration’s decisions on Syrian war as laudable. In the end, Prime Minister underlined the fact that Israel is also part of Europe and deserves more support from this part of the world.
