The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of building missiles in Syria to be deployed against Israel.

He accused Iran in a meeting with the UN Secretary General António Guterres. He said that Iran is building precision guided missiles in Syria and Lebanon.

“I think the most pressing problem we face regards Hezbollah and Syria … tens of thousands of weapons smuggling into Lebanon for Hezbollah, contrary to 1701,” Netanyahu said after welcoming Guterres to his office.

“Iran is busy turning Syria into a base of military entrenchment, and it wants to use Syria and Lebanon as war fronts against its declared goal to eradicate Israel,” Netanyahu said in Tel Aviv.

Mr. Prime Minister didn’t mention any specifics to prove his allegations, though.

“Iran is busy turning Syria into a base of military entrenchment, and it wants to use Syria and Lebanon as war fronts against its declared goal to eradicate Israel,” Netanyahu said in Tel Aviv.

“[Iran] is also building sites to produce precision-guided missiles towards that end in both Syria and in Lebanon,” he said, without offering specifics. “This is something Israel cannot accept. This is something the UN should not accept.”

Guterres said calling for the destruction Israel is a form of modern anti-Semitism. Hinting to the recent UN-Israel disagreements on several issues UN Secretary said, “But you also understand that I sometimes disagree with positions of the Government of Israel or any other government, and that is absolutely normal in a society where many of your citizens have exactly the same expressions of opinion.”

Netanyahu later posted on his Facebook fan page, “I met today with UN Secretary General António Guterres, who has arrived for an official visit to Israel. The UN has an absurd obsession with Israel. The time has come to restore moral clarity at the UN.”
