At a ceremony in Haifa for the arrival of a new Sa’ar 6 corvette to the Israeli Navy, President Isaac Herzog threatens those who attempt to harm Israeli citizens, singling out Iran.
“In recent weeks, we have witnessed Iran’s attempt to harm Israeli targets also on the naval front. This is not just an Israeli matter. The whole world has seen the results of Iran’s aggression against innocent civilians,” Herzog says.
“Only last weekend, we again saw the activity of Iran and its affiliates on the northern border,” he says of rocket attacks by the Iran-backed Lebanese Hezbollah terror group. “If anyone in Lebanon thinks they can threaten us — they are making a bitter mistake.”
Herzog says Israel will not agree to have its citizens under fire, and threatens that “whoever tries to harm us, anywhere, in near and far arenas, directly or indirectly, will feel our power and might.”
