1:02 pm
recessed a spokesperson for the israeli defense forces in the golan heights and welcome to you jonathan we thank you so much for joining us we've heard that that you know for israel's part you are saying that the the rockets which were fired into the golan heights that they were fired by an iranian brigade what evidence do you have for that. thank you for having me a good day it's very clear we have a very good in confidence picture of the iranian deployment in that syria we have been following their movement for quite a long time and we have seen what the iranians have been trying to do over the last month and that has been to attack israel almost at all costs they have been trying to do this for the last month we have been able to defend and change our posture accordingly it was very clear what the iranians were doing we saw the movie about will launch or. positioning itself and when we spoke to the fire it was very clear
1:03 pm
with the iranians were doing they were attacking israel from the syrian soil something that we see naturally as a very dangerous severe activity against israel so at what point in your operation are you right now because we know that your defense minister said a short while ago that nearly all of the iranian infrastructure in syria was hit and that he hopes that the chapter was closed are israeli forces standing down right now. it is ready forces continue to defend the state of israel that is army general and that includes also. keeping a good eye on anything that happened and even has the potential to threaten israel so from a military perspective we're looking at the iranian deployment in syria still remains and it will be they will be under close scrutiny to see what they will try to do in the future we hope that the message was clear enough that once they attacked us once the iranians attacked israel and fire pocketful twenty rockets towards israel we retaliated and the purpose of our retaliation was to carry
1:04 pm
a clear message to the iranian regime and to the commander of the quds force customs to the money who very brazenly attacked israel and the message is that israel or the i.d.f. seek to defend itself and we do not think that's going to situation but we will not hesitate in defending ourselves against the whole firm intentions of the iranian regime and as we have said before and made clear we are not going to tolerate a host of the summer deployment of the reunion military infrastructure inside syria the last sentence for me they are one thousand six hundred kilometers away from iraq so the question that needs to be asked is what are you reunion troops doing so far from home and so close to israel so i want to ask you then because you know i hear the sense of urgency in your voice that you said that you sent a message that you're monitoring the situation but ultimately what is the israeli military prepared to do to eliminate the iranian military presence in syria so close to your country which we know that the prime minister benjamin netanyahu is
1:05 pm
now making a top priority how far could this go. well i think it's been made very clear by our national leadership and it has been cleared by the chief of staff very clearly as well that we will continue to the front office of the state of israel are civilians against this very significant grip that is building close to our border which is based on the iranian capabilities but they're deploying how far will we go we will go as far as necessary in order to ensure the safety and the sovereignty of the state of israel and its citizens and we hope iran will reign in its terrorist on the exploding all over to redeem the quds force and understand the message that it is not within the renewed interest syrian interest all the regional interest for them to deploy inside syria or to try to attack israel they want to thank you very much jonathan convict us a spokesperson for the israeli defense forces in the golan heights we appreciate
