SOT, Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel (Hebrew): "If someone rises to kill you, rise up and kill him first. In a complicated operation by our security forces, we determined that Iran's Quds Force dispatched a special unit of Shi'ite militants into Syria to kill Israelis on the Golan Heights with explosive drones. I would like to emphasise that this was an initiative of Iran, under the command of Iran, at the behest of Iran. With great determination, and in perfect Israeli army operational and intelligence fashion, we pre-empted them and thwarted this attack. We prevented serious attacks. Henceforth we will expose any attempt by Iran to attack us and any Iranian effort to hide behind this or that excuse. I would like to reiterate that we will not tolerate aggression against Israel from any country in the region. Any country that allows its territory to be used for aggression against Israel will face the consequences, and I repeat — the country will face the consequences."
