PM in North: Khamenei makes it clear Iran will continue to fund terrorism-

As Iran made clear it will continue supporting proxies waging war against Israel, and Iran said Russia would soon provide it state-of-the-art S-300 anti-aircraft missiles, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the North on Tuesday and pledged Israel would strike hard at those who try to harm it.


“The IDF is strong, the State of Israel is strong,” he said during a tour of the IDF’s Northern Command headquarters in Safed. “We are ready for any eventuality.


We will hit out at those who try to harm us.”


Netanyahu, accompanied by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, said he came to the northern border to see first-hand the army’s preparedness for the threats coming from the North, which he laid squarely at Iran’s doorstep.

“The leader of Iran, [Ayatollah Ali] Khamenei, said yesterday, and I quote, ‘We will use all means to support all those who fight Israel,’” Netanyahu said.


“Iranian Foreign Minister [Mohammad Javad] Zarif said a few days ago in Beirut, after meeting the head of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, that the nuclear deal has provided an historic opportunity to stand against the Zionist entity.”
