Israel will act against Iran, proxies if necessary: Netanyahu

Israel will act against Iran, proxies if necessary: Netanyahu

You should. It's yours. "You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran - do not test Israel's resolve!"

"[Netanyahu's] entire speech was trying to evade the issue", Zarif said.

Israel said it shot down the drone on 10 February after it entered the country from Syria.

Among Israel's main concerns is Lebanon, where the heavily-armed Iran-backed Shi'ite militia Hezbollah is part of a coalition government.

"Israel uses aggression as a policy against its neighbors", Zarif said, citing the regular air incursions into Syria and Lebanon.

"Zarif however said that the deal was struck the accord "in spite" of Netanyauh, adding that the world "will maintain" the agreement, "despite his [Netanyahu's] delusional attempts" to dismantle it".

"Israel will not allow Iran's regime to put a noose of terror around our neck", Netanyahu said.

Iran's Foreign Minister said on Sunday the shooting down of an Israeli jet after it bombed an Iranian site in Syria had shattered Israel's "so-called invincibility", reacting to a critical speech delivered earlier by Israel's premier.

Earlier on Sunday, Netanyahu called Iran the biggest threat in the world, and taunted Zarif while holding the aircraft fragment.

In his first address to the annual Munich event, which draws security and defence officials and diplomats from across Europe and the United States, Netanyahu urged his audience to counter Iran immediately, displaying a map showing what he said was Iran's growing presence in the Middle East.

"This is a very risky development for our region".

"Appeasement never works, " he said.

Israel last fought a war against Hezbollah in 2006.

"I can assure that if Iran's interests are not secured, Iran will respond, will respond seriously". The premier has also refused to step down from his post as many say his position is no longer tenable in light of the recurrent corruption scandals.

He pursued the analogy later in the afternoon, when he visited a memorial to Israeli athletes who were killed by Palestinian terrorists during the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Police have said there are grounds to indict Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for bribery, fraud and breach of public trust. "Millions were slaughtered here just because they were Jews".

"We are completely prepared to defend our land", he stressed during a meeting with Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit on the margins of the Munich Security Conference.
