Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says Israeli security forces will operate anywhere in the world to protect its citizens.

“At this very moment, we are witnessing attempts to harm Israelis at different places around the world,” says Bennett at a ceremony commemorating IDF soldiers who died during the First Lebanon War.

The prime minister is referencing ongoing warnings that Iran is attempting to harm Israeli targets in Turkey in a revenge attack for the recent assassination of a senior IRGC official — widely attributed to Israel.

“The security apparatus of Israel is doing everything it can to foil such attacks and to neutralize in advance those who are sending the terrorists,” Bennett adds. “We will not hesitate to use the power of the State of Israel anywhere in the world in order to protect our citizens.”
