Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called on the international community to act immediately to halt Iranian aggression and expansionism in the Middle East. “Iran is working on a broad front to carry out murderous terrorist attacks against [Israel],” Netanyahu said, adding that his government would “continue to defend [the Jewish state’s] security however that may be necessary.” The comments come amid heightened tensions in Israel’s North, following the IDF’s large-scale military operation this weekend in Syria to thwart a plot by Tehran to attack Israeli communities using “killer drones.” It also comes as Hizbullah chief Hasan Nasrallah accused Israel of attacking a terror base deep inside Lebanon. “Any country that allows its [land] to be used for aggression against Israel will face the consequences, and I repeat: the country will face the consequences,” Netanyahu asserted in a tacit message to the Lebanese government. Israel maintains a policy of holding responsible the governing entity for any attacks emanating from territory it controls.
