Israeli military actions have taken a toll on Iran’s efforts to consolidate its presence in Syria, a high-ranking IDF official said on Wednesday, Voice of America Persian reported.

Speaking at a Jewish Policy Center event in Washington, DC, Maj. Gen. Michael Edelstein — Israel’s defense and armed forces attaché to the US — explained, “If I would have to draw…a graph, and the Iranians would like to be here in July 2018,” Edelstein stated, as he raised his hand above his head. “They are far away from this, due to Israel’s campaign against Iranian activities in Lebanon, in Syria, and any other place that threatens us.”
