Netanyahu: Israel fully stands alongside the US in the struggle for security

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting said that Israel fully stands alongside the US in the just struggle for security, peace and self-defense, following the elimination of arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani. 

“Qassem Soleimani brought about the death of many American citizens and many other innocents in recent decades and at present. Soleimani initiated, planned and carried out many terrorist attacks throughout the Middle East and beyond.

President Trump is deserving of all esteem for taking determined, strong and quick action. I would like to reiterate – Israel fully stands alongside the US in the just struggle for security, peace and self-defense”.

Qassem Soleimani was eliminated in a drone strike at Baghdad International Airport. The White House said President Trump ordered the strike in the early hours of Friday.

He was targeted while being driven from Baghdad airport by local Iran-backed terrorists, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes, a close Soleimani associate.

Arch-terrorist Qassem Soleimani was plotting a series of attacks that endangered American troops and officials.

Soleimani and his terrorists were responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.
