Israel reacts to US Syria pullout: “Israel will defend itself, by itself, against any threat”

 

Herland Report: Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu gave a speech at the Yom Kippur memorial only days after the US announced its pulling out of Syria. Allegedly, the pullout came without warning to the Israelis.

Prime Minister Netanyahu put it this way: “Israel will defend itself, by itself. We do not aspire to be a people alone. But that is how we had to stand at the beginning of the Yom Kippur war. Only towards the end did the Americans arrive.”

“We greatly appreciate the important support from the US, which has grown in recent years. And the huge economic pressure that the US is exerting on Iran.  That said, we always remember and implement the basic rule that guides us: Israel will defend itself, by itself. Israel will defend itself, by itself, against any threat.”

“The IDF is prepare to pre-empt any threat, defensively and offensively, with crushing strength. In both weaponry and spirit. This is the tremendous spirit that was instilled in us from the generation of the Yom Kippur war.”
