As Stand for Israel is telling you today, Iran’s threats against Israel have escalated. But, Israel Hayom reports, PM Netanyahu assured his nation and those who stand for her that the Jewish state has “full freedom of action” to defend herself against Iranian aggression:

“We do not want escalation, but we are ready for any scenario,” Netanyahu added.

Israel has repeatedly warned that it will not tolerate a permanent Iranian military presence in neighboring Syria. Iran is a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, and has provided crucial military aid to his forces.

“In recent months, the [Iranian] Revolutionary Guard have been moving advanced weaponry to Syria to strike us, both the war front and the homefront. This includes attack drones, surface-to-surface missiles, and anti-aircraft systems that pose a threat to Israeli aircraft,” Netanyahu said.

Evoking history, Netanyahu noted that “nations that were unwilling to act in time to stop murderous aggression against them went on to pay a much heavier price later…”
