Netanyahu confirms Israel attacked Iranian targets in Syria

NEW YORK USA- JANUARY 26: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addresses the media following a Security Council meeting on the situation in Venezuela at the United Nations headquarters in New York United States Netanyahu Confirms Latest Israeli Strike in Syria

"We operate every day, including yesterday, against Iran and its efforts to entrench itself in the region", Netanyahu said before boarding a flight to Poland for a conference focused on Tehran's activities in the Middle East.

But with few RSVPs coming, Poland and the United States have towned down the agenda to focus on ways of promoting peace and security in the Middle East.

Netanyahu and the Arab officials also shared a stage during a group photo scheduled for meeting participants.

Netanyahu expressed similar sentiments when he met earlier in the day with Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, telling him that the recent rapprochement between the two countries was "changing the world".

Speaking during a visit to a naval base in the northern port of Haifa, Netanyahu said: "The missiles you see behind me can go very far, against any enemy, including Iran's proxies in our region" - an apparent reference to Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah movement.

Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Syria in the past few years against Iranian and Hezbollah targets.

Iran was not invited, nor will the Palestinians have any representation at the summit. "Now we say, this is a new era, for the future".

The Poland conference aims to address Iran's influence in the Middle East, the Syrian conflict, Yemen's civil war and Israeli-Palestinian peace, the organisers say.

Walla reported that sources in the security establishment stated that the issue would be raised by Netanyahu when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next week.

Wednesday's meeting took place at the Warsaw Intercontinental hotel, where Netanyahu's delegation is staying.

Netanyahu is one of the highest-ranking officials in attendance at the summit, alongside foreign ministers and officials from 60 other countries.

Several million Yemenis face starvation and the country has suffered one of the worst cholera outbreaks in modern times as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates - backed by the U.S. - seek to bomb and blockade the country's Houthi rebels into surrender.

Oman hosted the Israeli leader in October and several high-ranking Israeli ministers have also made visits to countries in the Gulf over the past year.

Netanyahu says he doesn't think the Trump administration's "Deal of the Century" peace plan will be discussed.

Transatlantic cooperation was necessary to resolve problems in the Middle East, Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said.
