PM says Israel preventing terror attacks on foreign embassies

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israeli security is saving the lives of foreign diplomats, at a memorial ceremony for Israeli foreign service men and women who fell in the line of duty.

“The State of Israel is preventing a great number of terror attacks on foreign embassies, in foreign countries,” he says at the Foreign Ministry, without elaborating.

“Our activities save lives. They protect the lives of our men, of you, and also help protect the staff of the foreign services of other countries,” he tells the gathered diplomats and the families of 16 Israelis who were killed while serving the country abroad.

Netanyahu says the Jewish state is currently “enjoying a massive flourishing” of its foreign relations that he says is “unprecedented.”

“We’re considered a rising world power,” he adds.
