Yaalon Clarifies: Syria Intervention Not Israel’s Affair
Israel is not encouraging America to get involved in Syria, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said Tuesday during a visit to an IDF base in the town of Beit El.
“We aren’t getting involved in what is happening in Syria. What happened there crossed a red line from the Americans’ perspective, but we aren’t supporting, or involved in, a possible strike,” he clarified.
