The Israeli prime minister’s warning against Tehran is very clear in the event of an attack on the Hebrew state.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran on Wednesday that Israel would “sound” in the event of an attack on the Hebrew state.
“Whoever attacks us will receive a resounding response,” said Benjamin Netanyahu, who spoke after the nightly firing of Iranian missiles at bases used by the US military in Iraq.
The strike was carried out by Tehran as a response to the assassination of powerful Iranian general Qassem Soleimani on Friday by an American strike in Baghdad.
On Sunday, in Tehran, in the midst of a verbal escalation following the American strike that killed the general, a senior Iranian official had, in particular, threatened to reduce Israeli cities to “dust” if the United States takes the least measure after our military response to the assassination of Soleimani.
Benjamin Netanyahu described Qassem Soleimani on Wednesday as “chief terrorist” and “architect” of the “terror campaign” in the Middle East and said he was in solidarity with the United States, during this statement at a conference in Jerusalem in the presence of the American Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman.
Israel accused Qassem Soleimani, head of the Quds Force, an elite unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, of preparing attacks against the Hebrew state and of being the eminence of a project to convert Lebanese Hezbollah rockets in precision missiles that can cause significant damage to its territory.
Prime Minister Netanyahu, who sees Iran as Israel’s main enemy, also said on Wednesday that Arab countries have “growing relations” with the Hebrew state.
