Iran is a beautiful country with breathtaking architecture, great food and an enchanting culture. So why are they on Israel’s border? 

Iran is building an aggressive empire and seeking to build permanent military bases and precision-guided missile factories in Syria to be able to attack Israel from a closer range.

On February 10, an Iranian UAV entered into Israeli airspace and was shot down by the Israeli air force. The UAV was operated from an Iranian control room based in Syria. This incident exemplifies both Iran’s threat to Israel and the destabilizing effect of Iran’s growing presence in Syria.

The international community must insist that Iran cease its aggressive and destabilizing behavior in Syria and beyond.

Meanwhile, Israel will continue to act to prevent Iran from establishing another terror base from which it can attack and threaten Israel.
