Ya'alon: We Made It Clear to Russia that Israel Will Continue to Act in Syria to Protect Its Interests

(Jerusalem Post) Yaakov Lappin - Israel has made it clear to Russia that it will continue to act in Syria to protect its interests when necessary, and will not coordinate with Moscow on activities such as retaliating for Syrian cross-border fire, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Tuesday. "Prime Minister Netanyahu made it clear to President Putin that we are not involved in who will control Syria. Assad or not Assad, we are not entering that discussion at all. But we have interests, and when they are threatened we act, and we will continue to act....Those who try to violate our sovereignty - we will strike them, and those who try to transfer advanced weapons to terror elements, with an emphasis on Hizbullah, we will strike them, and those who try to transfer chemical weapons to terror elements, we will strike them....I suggest that no one tests us."
