Netanyahu: Israel will stop its enemies from getting nukes

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addresses Israel’s bombing of a Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007 after Israeli confirmation of the strike.

“The government of Israel, the IDF and the Mossad prevented Syria from developing a nuclear capability. They are deserving of all praise for this,” Netanyahu, who was opposition leader at the time, says in a statement.

“The policy of Israel was and remains consistent: To prevent our enemies from acquiring nuclear weapons,” he adds.
