JNS.orgCommenting on Iran’s exhibition of its weapons during a military parade in Tehran on Saturday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would “do whatever is necessary to defend the security of the state and its citizens.”

“Every year [at Iran’s military parade] the missiles are bigger and enhanced—in accuracy, strength, and deadliness,” Netanyahu said at his cabinet meeting on Sunday. “However, one thing does not change. What does not change is the inscription ‘Death to Israel’ on the missiles.”

Netanyahu also reiterated his opposition to the recently reached Russian-Iranian missile deal.

“Israel views with utmost gravity the supply of S-300 missiles from Russia to Iran, especially at a time when Iran is stepping up its aggression in the region and around the borders of the state of Israel,” he said.
