Netanyahu Confirms Israeli Military Strike in Syrian Golan Heights

Netanyahu arrived in Poland early Wednesday to join senior officials from 60 nations at the Warsaw summit on peace and security in the Middle East, which is organized by the United States and Poland in an effort to ratchet up pressure against Iran.

The Jerusalem Post reports that, although Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Qatar have all sent representatives to Warsaw for the conference, Palestinian Authority officials are boycotting the US -sponsored confab due to the Trump administration's 2018 recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and its relocation of its Israeli embassy to that capital. Iran, which is this week celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Islamic Revolution, denounced the meeting as a "circus" aimed at "demonizing" it.

Oman does not formally recognize Israel. For his part, Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah said, "People in the Middle East have suffered a lot because they have stuck to the past". It will also include discussion on the growing influence of Iran in the region. The Iranians say it is US -aligned forces in the region, and not they, who are belligerent.

Around 60 delegations from around the world were expected to be received by Polish President Andrzej Duda at the Royal Castle in Warsaw for the two-day event, but key participants have chose to skip the conference. The New York Times pointed out that Syria has been a target of Israeli attacks in recent months, stating that the attacks aimed to remove alleged Iranian targets.
