PM: We'll Act Forcefully Against Iranian Terror


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, Thursday afternoon, that Wednesday's suicide bombing in Burgas, Bulgaria must cause European countries to understand that Iran is a terrorist state. He accused the Islamic Republic of employing the Hizbullah terror apparatus in Lebanon to strike at Israel, as Hizbullah has been threatening to do for a couple of years, since the death of arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus.

Netanyahu stressed: "I believe it is time that all the countries that know the truth, not just Israel, tell the truth clearly - Iran is behind the wave of terrorism. It is the number one exporter of terrorism." He continued, "We will continue to fight Iranian terrorism. We will act forcefully against it. We will continue to pursue terrorists and take a toll on those who send them. The state of Israel is astrong state.... We will continue to fight Iranian terrorism."
