PM Netanyahu and DM Liberman attended a toast with IDF Chief-of-Staff and the General Staff Forum on the occasion of Israel’s 70th Independence. Netanyahu to Iranian FM: “I rely on this forum and on the IDF which are prepared for any possibility and any scenario”.
“I do not believe that we are headed towards regional war,” Zarif told CBS’s Face the Nation in the full interview released Sunday afternoon. He did, however, qualify his statement by saying that “Israel has continued its violations with international law, hoping to be able to do it with impunity because of US support and trying to find smokescreens to hide behind.”
“And I do not believe that the smokescreens work anymore,” he added.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman attended a toast with IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot and the General Staff Forum on the occasion of the State of Israel’s 70th Independence Day.
Prime Minister Netanyahu:
“I heard today the remarks of the Iranian Foreign Minister who accused Israel of violating international law.
This is the foreign minister of a country that sends armed UAVs against Israel and missiles at Saudi Arabia.
I also heard his moderate remarks and there is a tremendous gap between his words and the actions of the Revolutionary Guards which are moving an army against Israel with the avowed goal of destroying the State of Israel.
I am not impressed by words. I rely on this forum and on the Israel Defense Forces which are prepared for any possibility and any scenario. I raise a glass to the State of Israel and the IDF.”
Netanyahu then raised a glass to both the state and its army.
