Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel would respond to Iran's "aggression" with "steadfastness" on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day in Jerusalem on Wednesday.
Referring to Iran's threats of retaliation for a Monday air strike in Syria, which Tehran has attributed to Israel, Netanyahu warned not to test Israel's "resolve."
Netanyahu said, "Our policy can be summed up in three words: 'Steadfastness against aggression.' Steadfastness on defence, steadfastness on deterrence, steadfastness against anyone who threatens to destroy us. Because also today, a radical regime is threatening us and threatening the whole world. This regime says clearly that it aims to exterminate us, the Jewish state."
The Israeli prime minister went on to address the Iranian people directly, saying, "Israel is not your enemy, rather it is the regime of tyrants that oppresses you. When this regime disappears from the world, and it will disappear eventually, our two ancient peoples - Jews and Persians - can live again in cooperation and brotherhood."
On Tuesday, a top adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened Israel over a deadly missile strike on the T-4 Air Base in central Syria, accusing Israel of carrying out the attack.
