Israel Complains Syria Ceasefire Deal Helps Iran To Markedly Expand Their Presence In The Region

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday he rejects the newly-negotiated ceasefire in Syria, despite the deal enjoying strong support from President Donald Trump.

Netanyahu, who was in France to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Jews being rounded up in Paris, delivered his remarks after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.
