Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu criticizes International Atomic Energy Association chief Rafael Grossi for comments he made against a possible Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities.

Grossi, who just returned from a visit to Tehran, said yesterday that “any military attack on a nuclear facility is outlawed, is out of the normative structures that we all abide by.”

“Rafael Grossi is a worthy person who made an unworthy remark,” Netanyahu says. “Outside of what law? Is Iran — which publicly calls for our destruction — to protect its weapons of destruction that will slaughter us?”

“Are we forbidden to defend ourselves?” Netanyahu continues. “Of course we are allowed, and of course we are doing this… nothing will prevent us from protecting our country and preventing oppressors from destroying the Jewish state.”
