Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Syria's head of regime Bashar al-Assad, during a visit to London on Thursday, saying his regime is "no longer immune" from retaliation.

Mr Assad's regime is no longer immune.

Mr Netanyahu, who who held talks with Theresa May in Downing Street on Wednesday, said the threat of United States sanctions on companies which continue to trade with Iran had been decisive. "The choice is obvious", he said, speaking at the London think tank Policy Exchange.

According to AFP, "Israel has been pledging for months to prevent its main enemy Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria, where Tehran is backing Assad's regime".

"The consequences are not merely to the Iranian forces there but to the Assad regime as well", he said, adding: "I think it's something that he should consider very seriously".

Netanyahu met Wednesday in Paris with French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, who is pushing to maintain European trade with Iran allowed under the 2015 deal curbing Iranian nuclear activities.

"You have to choose an economy that is about 3-percent the size of the American economy or you forgo an economy with $21 trillion gdp, that's a no brainer and everybody is choosing it effectively as we speak", said Netanyahu. The senior diplomat also said that the three European leaders agreed to Israel's demand to have the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) review the Iranian nuclear archives obtained by the Mossad earlier this year.

However, the focus of his discussions in Europe had been on reducing Iran's presence in Syria, he added.

"I think there's a west European problem with recognising that the world is changing", he said.
