Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu attended an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of an Iranian-sponsored terror attack against Israel in Argentina. At the event he stated that the majority of Israel’s security concerns stem from Iran.

The Times of Israel reports:

“Iran is the greatest generator of terrorism in the world in the world and we need to to fight this terror because it is just one arm of Iranian aggression, which also seeks nuclear weapons and advances its ballistic missiles program,” he said at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

Tehran continues to destabilize the region and to threaten Israel with annihilation, he went on. “One of our defense officials estimates that more than 80 percent of our security problems emanate from Iran.”
