Iran plans to send 100,000 Shia fighters to ‘colonize’ Syria: Netanyahu


PanARMENIAN.Net – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday, January 9 that Iran intended to send 100,000 Shia fighters to Syria in an effort to “colonize” the country, Sputnik reports.

“As part of Iran’s plans of conquest and colonization of Syria, they want to bring in as many as 100,000 Shias, Shia fighters… not Iranians, under Iranian command,” Netanyahu said during a lunch with NATO ambassadors in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu stressed that this move might escalate tensions in the region and would lead to the emergence of new terrorist groups born out of Daesh and Al Qaeda.
