Netanyahu warns Iran: ‘Don’t threaten Israel’

“I have one message to Iran: Don’t threaten Israel,” Netanyahu stated in response to the latest threat from the Islamic Republic.

Addressing his Likud faction at the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to the latest Iranian threat with a counter-warning.

“I have one message to Iran: Don’t threaten Israel,” he stated.

Iran launched several missiles at Islamic State (ISIS) targets inside Syria the previous day in retaliation for the twin terror attacks carried out by the terror group a couple of weeks earlier.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps IRGC) said that these missile strikes were “just a warning to deter any further action by the terrorists,” adding that ISIS’ “regional and trans-regional supporters” will be “engulfed by its [Iran’s] revolutionary wrath and flames of the fire of its revenge in case they repeat any such devilish and dirty move in future.”

In a threat not only to ISIS, but also aimed at countries such as Saudi Arabia, the US and Israel, the statement continued, “IRGC ensures the noble Iranian nation that it will spare no effort to safeguard national security and defeat seditions and anti-security phenomena to the accompaniment of military, disciplinary, intelligence forces.”

Iranian officials added their own warnings, including a tweet by former senior military officer Gen. Mohsen Rezai, saying, “The bigger slap is yet to come.”

According to AP, “Israeli security officials said they were studying the missile strike to see what they could learn about its accuracy and capabilities. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to reporters.”

Netanyahu said Israeli forces were keeping track of Iran’s activities in the region. “We are watching their actions and watching their words,” he asserted.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that “Israel is not worried” and “is prepared for every development… We have no concerns or worries.”
