Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Iran was trying to provoke a war between Israel and Syria.

In a television interview aired Thursday, he said Iran was trying to convince Syria that an Israeli attack is imminent, which he said was a "lie."Tensions have been high recently between Israel and Syria. The sides have traded threats, and last week Israel accused Syria of smuggling powerful rockets to the Lebanese terrorists of Hizbullah. Syria denied the charge.



Speaking in an interview with Channel 2, Netanyahu repeated the charge that Syria and Iran were arming Hizbullah.
