In a celebratory toast with security chiefs ahead of Independence Day, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu comments regarding Iran, since Hebrew media cited “intelligence sources” that attributed an attack on the Islamic Republic’s Natanz nuclear site to the Mossad.

“The fight against Iran and its metastases and against Iranian armament is a huge task. The situation as it exists today is not necessarily how it will exist tomorrow,” Netanyahu says.

“It is very difficult to explain all that we have accomplished here in Israel, transitioning from a complete helplessness that was unparalleled in the history of nations, to the world power that we have become. We’re certainly a regional power, but in some ways we’re also a global one. I wish for all of us that you continue on this path, and that you continue to keep the sword of David in your hands.”
