Netanyahu Warns Iran to ‘Get Out of Syria’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a direct warning to Iran Tuesday morning during remarks at the swearing in ceremony for incoming IDF Chief of Staff Lt. General Aviv Kochavi, bluntly telling the clerical regime in Teheran to remove its forces from Syria. "I'm telling you, get out of there fast,” he said. “We wont stop attacking." He also mocked an Iranian denial that Israel struck its forces in Damascus last Friday and a coralating denial by that Iranian official that Teheran even has any forces in Syria to be struck.

"The Israeli claims of attacking 200 Iranian targets in Syria are false and baseless reports, that is an Israeli attempt to conceal their ongoing failures in the area," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi declared in a public statement late Monday. "Iran has no military presence in Syria."

In related news, Iranian Communications Minister Mohammad-Javad Azari issued a statement Tuesday morning that an attempt to launch a satellite into orbit around the earth failed as the rocket carrying it, which Israel and many other Western intelligence services believe is a cover for a program to develop nuclear capable intercontinental missiles, “failed to reach the required speed in the third stage, even though it succeeded in the first two stages of the launch."
