JD: Prime Minister Netanyahu comments saying that cooperation with Russia is critical now with the US leaving Syria. What is the thinking there among the Israeli leaders on this pull out of US troops?
DD: He tweeted that Israel strongly condemns the Turkish invasion of the Kurdish areas in Syria and warns of the ethnic cleansing of the Kurds which he termed a gallant people. There’s a lot of affinity between the Kurdish people and Israel. Of course they as the Jewish people have been under attack for so many centuries and have been ostracized and hunted down and all these sorts of things. So they feel very much for the Kurds now.
