Whether it be in Yemen or Beirut, or in Syria, in Iraq, you always find Iran engaged....If you live in the region, there's no doubt what Iran is doing." "So when Syria, which has made no...excuse for what they're doing alongside Iran, when they are providing throughput for Iran to give weapons, including more sophisticated weapons, to the Lebanese Hizbullah, Israel has an absolute right to defend themselves. They don't have to wait until their citizens are dying under attack before they actually address that issue."
