Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded this evening (Sunday) to the words of the Iranian foreign minister who accused Israel of violating international law.

In a toast to members of the General Staff of the IDF, Netanyahu mentioned that Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif is "the foreign minister of a country that sends armed drones against Israel and missiles against Saudi Arabia."

"I also heard his moderate words, and there is a huge gap between the words and the actions of the Revolutionary Guards, who are advancing as an army against Israel with the declared goal of destroying the State of Israel," Netanyahu said.

The Prime Minister emphasized, "I am not impressed by these words. I rely on this forum and the Israel Defense Forces to be ready for every possibility and every scenario."

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif gave an interview with CBS Sunday in which he accused Israel of violating international law.

"I do not believe that we are headed towards regional war but I do believe that unfortunately, Israel has continued its violations with international law, hoping to be able to do it with impunity because of the U.S. support and trying to find smokescreens to hide behind. And I do not believe that the smokescreens work anymore," Zarif said.
