Israel Allegedly Destroys Iranian Missile Factory in Syria
Satellite images were released by a private Israeli security firm on Sunday showing the apparent destruction of a facility believed to be an Iranian surface-to-surface missile factory in Syria’s Masyaf District, while Israeli Defence officials were declining to respond to reports that Israeli aircraft hit the site Saturday evening. However, incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at an event Sunday evening in which he said that the Jewish State would “continue to act” on the northern border to guarantee security for Israel and its citizens.

“When Israel’s security is at stake, we are operating at full force, and whoever puts us at risk is in a much greater danger,” he declared. “We will continue to act on all fronts, including on the northern front, because we are not prepared to allow someone to establish power and endanger the State of Israel. Power is the guarantee of our existence, and it is the essential and fundamental condition for achieving peace with our neighbours.”
