In a statement, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Saturday night: “I have been warning for some time about the dangers of Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria.”
“Iran seeks to use Syrian territory to attack Israel for its professed goal of destroying Israel.
“This morning Iran brazenly violated Israel’s sovereignty. They dispatched an Iranian drone from Syrian territory into Israel. And this demonstrates that our warnings were 100% correct.
The Trump administration played a key role in thwarting a recent effort by the Irish government to boycott Israel and make it a crime for Irish citizens to purchase products made in contested areas of the Jewish state, a move that would have severely jeopardized Ireland’s trade with the United States.
