Israel will not adhere to any arrangement that the international community might agree upon in Syria after the years-long war waged by foreign-backed terrorists in the Arab country comes to an end, Zionist regime’s minister of war says.
According to Press TV, speaking to reporters during a visit to the border with Lebanon, Avigdor Lieberman said as Syria was preparing to retake Idlib — the last major stronghold of terrorists in Syria — political efforts by Iran, Turkey, Russia and the international community in general to “redesign” Syria were increasing.
“We see various gatherings here and there; in Ankara, in Tehran, in Geneva, in other places too. They are talking about redesigning Syria after the battle for Idlib,” Lieberman said.
“From Israel’s perspective, with all due respect and appreciation for all the agreements and the understandings — we are not bound by them,” Lieberman said on Thursday.
“The only thing that obligates us are the security interests” of Israel, he added.
Lieberman’s remarks came on the heels of recent military cooperation agreements between Iran and Syria, which guaranteed that Iranian military advisors in Syria would remain in the conflict-ridden country. Tel Aviv insists that Iranian forces should leave Syria.
Iran has been providing military advisory support to Syria at the request of the Damascus government, enabling its army to speed up its gains on various fronts against terror outfits.
There has been a hike in Israeli airstrikes against Syria since the collapse of the Daesh terror group last year, an event that significantly demoralized the other Takfiri terrorist groups operating against Damascus.
Zionist regime has also been providing weapons and medical treatment to anti-Damascus terrorists.
