Coalition slams Netanyahu visit to border hospital
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The opposition National Coalition has condemned the visit by Israeli Prime Minister BenjaminNetanyahu to a Golan Heights field hospital, where he chatted with wounded Syrians, as a publicity stunt. 

A statement by the coalition’s media office late Wednesday said Israel “stood against the Syrian uprising from the start, when they repeatedly warned of the danger of weapons falling in the hands of what they described as terrorists.” 

The coalition said Netanyahu was seeking to create the false notion that there is “a relationship between the Syrian revolution and the Zionist entity.” 

During the visit, Netanyahu spoke with a number of wounded Syrians, and made statements critical of Iran’s role in the Syrian war.
