Transcript: Netanyahu confirms Israel carried out operation in Syria

Transcript: Netanyahu confirms Israel carried out operation in Syria
Dr. Aaron Lerner 19 September 2007

Opposition leader Likud Chairman MK Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday became
the first Israeli official to confirm Israel carried out an operation in
Syria about two weeks ago.

The following is IMRA's translation of the transcript of Netanyahu's
interview on Israel Television Channel 1 Mabat evening news program this
evening:

Anchor Chaim Yavin: With your permission I would like to turn to the north.
We haven't heard you praise Olmert for the operation cloaked in secrecy.

Netanyahu: You don't expect me to say something.

Yavin: Maybe you haven't said a good word about Olmert because the polls are
getting favorable to him - perhaps at your expense?

Netanyahu: Absolutely not. I think that when the prime minister does
things that I see as important as vital, when the Government does things for
the security of Israel, I give the support. I must also say that in this
matter I was a partner from the first moment. And I gave support. But it is
too early to discuss this matter and when the time comes to give all the
congratulations - and principally I would say to the. . .

Yavin: Did you congratulate him?

Netanyahu: Personally?

Yavin: For this operation.

Netanyahu: Yes.

Yavin: We won't elaborate. Because according to foreign reports Israel hit
a nuclear facility - everything is cloaked in secrecy - and you are not
prepared to detail and say what was in this conversation.

Netanyahu: No.
