Raisi's visit to Syria is detrimental to 'Israel': Israeli media
Israeli media commentators discussed Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi's two-day visit to Syria, saying that the event will strengthen the Tehran-Damascus-Hezbollah alliance against 'Israel'.
Israeli media outlets expressed concerns regarding Iran's President, Ibrahim Raisi's two-day visit to Syria which they saw as an attempt to strengthen the Tehran-Damascus-Hezbollah alliance.
The military correspondent for Channel 12, Nir Dvori, viewed the visit as detrimental to "Israel" as it sought to strengthen the front against "Tel Aviv". He claimed that today "fierce competition", around the reconstruction of Syria, has arisen as Iranians, Russians, and most recently Saudi Arabia are interested in taking part in these projects.
A couple of days ago, Israeli media reported that President Raisi's visit to Syria comes at a critical time to announce that Syria and its allies have won and that their strategic alliance cannot be broken.
Furthermore, the Israeli Channel 13 said that the Iranian president's visit to Damascus indicated the new Iranian era in the Middle East region.
The Iranian President arrived in Damascus heading a high-level economic and political delegation as he was welcomed by President Bashar Al-Assad on Wednesday, where the two signed 15 cooperation agreements, according to Iranian media.
On Friday the two heads of state concluded the diplomatic events by issuing a joint statement stressing the necessity of respecting national sovereignty and independence and preserving the territorial integrity of the two countries in accordance with the principles of the UN Charter.
The statement pointed to the in-depth discussions held by Al-Assad and Raisi that focused on pathways to develop and strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries on a fraternal and strategic basis, confirming the continuation of joint cooperation in order "to eliminate all terrorist groups once and for all."
Furthermore, the Iranian President met with a delegation of Palestinian Resistance leaders on Thursday at the presidential palace in Syria, an event which Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian attended.
During his speech at the shrine of Sayyida Zainab, Raisi pointed out that "Palestine was steadfast in its resistance against the Zionist regime," which has affected the balance of power in the region stressing that "the reigns today are in the hands of the mujahideen who aspire to liberate Al-Quds."
