LONDON: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Iran crossed a red line by firing missiles on Israeli positions in the occupied Golan heights. The Israeli PM added that Israeli armed forces will retaliate against any military action from Syria.

In a brief video address, he said Israel carried out a “very broad attack against Iranian targets in Syria.”
“We are in the midst of a protracted battle and our policy is clear: We will not allow Iran to entrench itself militarily in Syria,” Netanyahu said.
