UN envoy warns enemies ‘not to test’ Israel

After Israel confirmed it destroyed a Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007, its envoy to the UN warns foes “not to test” the country’s resolve.

“The international community must know that Israel will always protect the security of its citizens and take all necessary steps in the face of threats in our region,” says Danny Danon.

“Our enemies would be wise not to test Israel’s resolve or question our readiness to defend our nation,” he adds.
