Israel defence minister to Syria's Assad: 'throw Iranians out'Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Friday urged Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to expel Iranian forces from his country, after Israeli air strikes hit alleged Iranian targets in Syria. “I shall take advantage of this opportunity to send a message to Assad: throw the Iranians out,” a defence ministry statement quoted Lieberman as saying during a visit to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Israel claims it struck dozens of Iranian targets inside Syria early on Thursday in response to a salvo of rockets fired by Iranian forces into the occupied Golan Heights.
