Israel’s campaign against Iran’s aggression is not over, and “we are still in it,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the cabinet at Sunday’s weekly meeting.

“The Tehran regime is the main factor undermining stability in the Middle East,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting at his office in Jerusalem. “The campaign against its aggression has not ended.”

Netanyahu said Israel was taking action against arms manufacturing in Lebanon and threatened continued fighting with Iran Sunday.

“We are attempting to prevent Iran from obtaining weapons with nuclear capabilities. At the same time we are working against the eѕtablіshment of an Iranian army presence or the transfer of deadly weapons from Syria to Lebanon or theіr manufacture іn Lebanon.

Netanyahu noted that he talked over the weekend with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and expressed Israel’s appreciation fоr the strong and determined position the US administration is taking agаinst the Iranian agreement and against the Islamic Republic’s aggression in the region.

By the token Netanyahu said, Israel will not tolerate attacks from the Gaza Strip.

“This morning we express deep sorrow over the passing of Duvdevan unit fighter St.-Sgt. Ronen Lubarsky. He was mortally wounded during an operation last week in Ramallah. Duvdevan is a splendid unit that has contributed, and is contributing, greatly to the security of Israel and the saving of the lives of Israeli citizens,” Netanyahu said.
