He made the statement just hours after Israel purportedly struck a Syrian military center believed to be producing chemical weapons and precision missiles.

“We are not looking for any military adventure in Syria but we are determined to prevent our enemies from harming, or even creating the opportunity to harm the security of Israeli citizens,” Liberman told Israel’s Radio FM 100.

“Therefore, everything will be done to prevent the existence of a Shi’a corridor from Tehran to Damascus.”

Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center said the alleged Israeli strike occurred near the city of Hama. The Syrian army proceeded to warn Israel of “serious consequences” for its “aggressive activities,” which it argued destabilize the region and “raise the Islamic State’s morale.”

The strike reportedly was initiated from Lebanese air space and killed two Syrian regime soldiers. The IDF has neither confirmed nor denied its role in the strike.
