Netanyahu: We’ll keep up action for keeping advanced weapons from Hizballah
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made this pledge at the weekly cabinet meeting Sunday in Jerusalem. In Tel Aviv, the IDF military spokesman denied any foundation to the claim that Israel preferred an intact Assad regime to the alternative, as the London Times quoted an Israeli official as stating.
Also denied in Jerusalem was the report by political correspondents that the US had apologized to Israel for the media leak identifying the Israeli Air Force as responsible for the May 5 attack on Damascus. DEBKAfile: There was no apology: the leak was a Obama administration ploy calculated to curb Israel’s freedom of independent action in Syria.
