Netanyahu confirms Israel behind artillery attack in Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left sits beside United State Secretary of State Mike Pompeo right at a conference on Peace and Security in the Middle East in Warsaw Poland Thursday Feb. 14 2019. The Polish capital is host for a two-day

The word "war" was removed from the statement without explanation.

Russian Federation and China aren't participating, and the Palestinians, who have called for the meeting to be boycotted, will also be absent.

Netanyahu is one of the highest-ranking officials in attendance at the summit, alongside foreign ministers and officials from 60 other countries.

But some experts and journalists said Netanyahu's comments were blown out of proportion.

Several weeks ago, Iranian Air Force Commander Brigadier General Aziz Nasirzadeh made a related comment, saying that "current and future generations [of air force pilots] are impatient and ready to fight against Israel and eliminate it from the Earth".

Although it is absent from the stage, Iran is nevertheless taking the spotlight at a Middle East security conference co-hosted by the United States and Poland that has highlighted deep divisions between the US and some of its traditional allies.

The opening ceremony for the two day conference gets under way in Warsaw. Nevertheless, the fact that a minor translation error can change so much about how we view the USA and Israeli stance toward Iran shows how perilous the devolving relations have become.

Di Maria even had a bottle thrown at him when he went over to take a set-piece in front of the fans during the second-half. His performance was memorable for many reasons, as Man United 's fans and players looked to get at di Maria early on.

On Wednesday, Netanyahu boasted of the strong ties Israel is building with Arab countries in the region.

"Many are following in your footsteps, including among those here today at the conference", a statement released by Netanyahu's office quoted him telling, whose Gulf state hosted the Israeli leader in October.

US President Donald Trump also unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal previous year and reimposed sanctions on Tehran.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, among other Western European foreign ministers, has pulled out of the event. Israel lacks both formal diplomatic and economic relations with the United Arab Emirates.

"We now have a shortening window of opportunity to turn the ceasefire into a durable path to peace - and stop the world's worst humanitarian crisis", Hunt said, as reported by AFP.

And Ned Price, President Barack Obama's former national security spokesman, said European nations downgraded their delegations because they believed the Trump administration was going to use the summit as an "anti-Iran pep rally".
