NEW YORK - Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon met this week with Major General Francis Vib-Sanziri, the new commander of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) stationed on the Israeli-Syrian border. During their meeting, Ambassador Danon expressed to the commander that Israel would not accept the presence of Iran or its proxies, such as Hezbollah, in the vicinity of the border or in the Quneitra region.

 “Israel will do all that is necessary to ensure the security of its citizens and will not allow for any threat to its sovereignty,” Ambassador Danon said during the meeting. “The international community must act immediately against Iran’s aggression and their attempts undermine stability in the region,” he added.
