via Netanyahu: ‘Better Now Than Later’ to Confront Iranian Threat – Breaking Israel News | Latest News. Biblical Perspective.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proclaimed on Sunday that since Iran is supplying advanced weapons to Syria, posing a direct threat to Israel, it would be better to confront Tehran sooner rather than later.

Speaking at the start of a weekly cabinet meeting Sunday, Netanyahu declared that “we are determined to block Iran’s aggression against us, even if this means a struggle. Better now than later.”

“We do not want escalation, but we are ready for any scenario,” he added.

Israel has repeatedly warned that it will not tolerate a permanent Iranian military presence in neighboring Syria. Iran is a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad and has provided crucial military aid to his forces.

“In recent months, the [Iranian] Revolutionary Guard [Corps] have been moving advanced weaponry to Syria to strike us, both the war front and the homefront. This includes attack drones, surface-to-surface missiles and anti-aircraft systems that pose a threat to Israeli aircraft,” said Netanyahu.
