France reportedly relaying messages from Israel to Tehran

At Israel’s request, France has begun relaying messages from Jerusalem to Tehran regarding its buildup of troops in southern Syria, Channel 10 reports.

A French official told the TV station that Israel approached the French government several weeks ago asking for a message to be conveyed to senior Iranian military officials.

The official declined to say what the message contained, but said that Paris had relayed a number of similar messages to officials in Tehran recently.

He added that France sent the message to the office of President Hassan Rouhani, who in any case does not support the IRGC presence in Syria, and so the influence of the messages so far has been limited.
