Netanyahu visits Paratrooper unit during military drill in northern Israel; Addresses strikes preventing weapons transfers to Hezbollah; “This is our country, we must defend it, and no one will defend it for us except ourselves.” Prime Minister Netanyahu confirmed that Israel has carried out dozens of strikes in Syria preventing weapons transfers to the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

Speaking to the Paratroopers Unit of the IDF in northern Israel on Monday during a military exercise on the border with Syria, Netanyahu stated that “We [Israel] act when we have to act, including here and across the border, with dozens of strikes, to prevent Hezbollah from acquiring game-changing weaponry. We also act on other fronts, both near and far, and we do so intelligently… If we need to go to war, and this possibility stands before us and because of that you are here it’s because we weren’t able to prevent dangers to the State of Israel in any other way.” FULL REPORT
