Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on September 10, 2017

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country will foil any attempts by Iran to turn Iraqi and Yemeni territory into bases for launching rockets and missiles at Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu said during a security tour with Defense Minister Naftali Bennett to the northern military zone on Sunday that “Iranian aggression in the region and against Israel is continuing.” He continued: “Israel is taking all necessary measures to prevent Iran from positioning itself in the region, and thwart the transfer of lethal weapons by air or land from Iran to Syria.”

He described the Iranian authorities dealing with the issue of recent protests in the country as a “slaughter”, calling it “further proof of the nature of this regime.”

The Israeli Prime Minister stressed that “the commitment of Tel Aviv and its readiness to combat Iranian aggression,” saying: “We work in various ways to prevent Iran from achieving its goals.”

The commander of US Central Command, General Kenneth Mackenzie, said that “it is very likely that Iran will try again to attack Saudi territory,” but warned that the Saudi response this time will be strict.

Mackenzie, in remarks with the newspaper New York Times said that Washington has identified serious and credible threats from Iran, expected to be via drones and ballistic missiles, in a manner similar to the attack on Saudi Aramco oil facilities on September 14 Last September.

He’s about to join other ex-PMs from Israel in club IPS. What is it with corruption amongst Israeli leaders?

MUCH less than the $95 billions Khamenei stole from the Iranian people and put up his personal businesses together with IRGC brasses…

Este corrupto pretende engañar con falso patriotismo y tapar sus atrocidades. El pueblo de Israel muy pronto abrirá los ojos, el día que el sionismo sea extirpado de Israel volverá la paz anhelado en la región.

It’s time Bibi understands that mowing the lawn is not a language the pitiful bearded cretins in Tehran understand. Just cut the head of the snake and its defecations will stop feeding the roaches it uses as proxies in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and in Pali-occupied Israeli territories.

The only snake in the grass is Israel grabbing Lebanese, Palestinian and Syrian land and claiming it as their own.

Arab-League stole 200,000km² in real estate from Jews when the A-L organised the Jewish-Naqba between 1948 and 1951.
Israel should reclaim it, and so is it for the $100bn stolen to the Jewish refugees.

Oh, BTW, Syria is 185,000km², Jordan is 77,000km², Lebanon is 11,000km², Sinai is 60,000km².
Where do you prefer Jews having their real-estate back from Arab-League land thieves? When it comes to the $100bn, with interest rates, Arab-Leagues owes much more as compensations, likely at least half a trillion $…
