Netanyahu: Iranian, Hizbullah and ISIS Forces Must Be Removed from Syria

(Prime Minister's Office) At the weekly Cabinet meeting, held on the Golan Heights on Sunday, Prime Minister Netanyahu said: "The Golan Heights have been an integral part of the Land of Israel since ancient times; the dozens of ancient synagogues in the area around us attest to this....During the 19 years that the Golan Heights were under Syrian occupation, when they were a place for bunkers, wire fences, mines and aggression, they were for war. In the 49 years that the Golan Heights have been under Israeli rule, they have been for agriculture, tourism, economic initiatives and building. They are for peace." "I spoke last night with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and I told him...that we will not oppose a diplomatic settlement in Syria, on condition that it not come at the expense of the security of the State of Israel, i.e., that at the end of the day, the forces of Iran, Hizbullah and ISIS will be removed from Syrian soil."
