On Golan, PM blasts possible Iran deal

Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon tour Mount Hermon on the Golan Heights, where the PM pans Iran for its actions in the region, and the international community for negotiating with Tehran while it supports terror.

“For some time, Iran has been trying to open a new front here against us,” says Netanyahu. “Instead of the leading players in the international community demanding that Iran stop the terror it is enacting in the region and in the entire world, they are running toward an agreement that will allow it to arm itself with a nuclear weapon.”

“This deal is very dangerous — dangerous for Israel, dangerous for the region and for the entire world, and we will oppose it strongly.”

He also sends his condolences to Jordan’s King Abdullah and the Jordanian people over the murder of a pilot at the hands of Islamic State.
