(JNS.org) Commenting on Iran’s exhibition of its weapons during a military parade in Tehran on Saturday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would “do whatever is necessary to defend the security of the state and its citizens.”
“Every year [at Iran’s military parade] the missiles are bigger and enhanced – in accuracy, strength, and deadliness,” Netanyahu said at his cabinet meeting on Sunday. “However, one thing does not change. What does not change is the inscription ‘Death to Israel’ on the missiles.”
Netanyahu also reiterated his opposition to the recently reached Russian-Iranian missile deal. “Israel views with utmost gravity the supply of S-300 missiles from Russia to Iran, especially at a time when Iran is stepping up its aggression in the region and around the borders of the state of Israel,” he said.
