“Iran, a country without nuclear weapons, is threatened with atomic annihilation by a warmonger standing next to an actual nuclear weapons factory. Beyond shameless in the gall,” Iran’s foreign minister stated.

Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s statement Wednesday evening in which he warned the Islamic Republic against seeking Israel’s destruction.
At a renaming ceremony for the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center in Dimona on Wednesday, Netanyahu stressed Israel’s military capabilities, adding that only through strength can peace be achieved.
“Our enemies know very well what Israel is capable of doing. They are familiar with our policy. Whoever tries to hurt us – we hurt them,” the prime minister declared.
“In the military sphere, the IDF will continue to take strong and determined action against Iran’s attempts to station forces and advanced weapons systems in Syria. No agreement between Syria and Iran will deter us; neither will any threat deter us.
“Whoever threatens us with destruction puts himself in similar danger, and in any case will not achieve his goal,” Netanyahu affirmed.
“Iran, a country without nuclear weapons, is threatened with atomic annihilation by a warmonger standing next to an actual nuclear weapons factory. Beyond shameless is the gall,” Zarif tweeted.
