Israel defence minister to Syria’s Assad: ‘throw Iranians out’

Jerusalem (AFP) – Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Friday urged Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to expel Iranian forces from his country, after Israeli air strikes hit alleged Iranian targets in Syria.

“I shall take advantage of this opportunity to send a message to Assad: throw the Iranians out,” a defence ministry statement quoted Lieberman as saying during a visit to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
