Hours after Syrian media accused Israel of striking the Latakia port, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says that the country is fighting “the bad forces” in the Middle East nearly every day.
“We’re pushing back on the bad forces of this region day and night,” he says in English alongside Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades. “We won’t stop for one second. This happens almost daily.”
“In the face of destructive forces we will continue to act, we will be persistent, and we will not tire,” Bennett continues.
The three leaders are now in a trilateral meeting over lunch at the Orient Hotel in Jerusalem. The meeting is the eighth Israel-Cyprus-Greece summit.
