Netanyahu: I have one message for Iran: Don’t threaten us!

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu advised Iran Monday not to threaten Israel, in response to Iran's Revolutionary Guard statement that it had fired six missiles from western Iran into northeastern Syria on Sunday. They described the attack as retaliation for June 7 attacks in Tehran that killed 17 people in the first ISIS claimed operation in Iran.

“We follow their [Iranian] actins and we follow their words,” Netanyahu said. "I have one message to Iran: Do not threaten Israel. The army and our security forces are constantly monitoring the activity of Iran in the region," he said. "This activity also includes their attempts to establish themselves in Syria and, of course, to transfer advanced weapons to Hizballah and other operations."

DEBKAfile adds: The fact is that the Iranians are indeed establishing themselves in Syria. But Israel has not acted to impede them.
