Netanyahu Issues Chilling Warning as Iran’s President Vows to Destroy Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has delivered a bone-chilling message in response to threats from Iran.

Netanyahu left no doubt in a statement regarding what his Jewish country might do should current tensions with Iran escalate further.

“Israel will do whatever it needs to defend itself,” Netanyahu said in a statement.

The comment came after separate meetings with British Foreign Secretary David Cameron and Germany’s Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock in Israel on Wednesday.

During the meetings, the ministers discussed actions Israel could pursue to retaliate for Iran’s unprecedented, direct attack on Israel last weekend.

“They have all sorts of suggestions and advice,” Netanyahu added.

“I appreciate that. But I want to be clear: Our decisions we will make ourselves.”

According to Reuters, Baerbock said during the meeting that escalation “would serve no one, not Israel’s security, not the many dozens of hostages still in the hands of Hamas, not the suffering population of Gaza, not the many people in Iran who are themselves suffering under the regime, and not the third countries in the region who simply want to live in peace.”

Netanyahu’s comment also comes just hours after Iran’s president vowed to completely destroy Israel.

President Ebrahim Raisi warned of the ultimate repercussions should Israel proceed with even the “tiniest invasion” of its country.

Raisi vowed a “massive and harsh” response to potential Israeli retaliation.

He issued the warning during a speech Wednesday at an annual army parade.

Iran launched hundreds of missiles and drones at Israel on Saturday in response to an apparent strike on Iran’s embassy compound in Syria on April 1 that killed 12 people, including two Iranian generals.

The Iranian regime blames Israel for the attack, although Israel has not claimed any involvement.

Raisi said Saturday’s attack was a limited one but that “nothing would remain from the Zionist regime,” should it escalate the current situation, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Israel and Iran have waged a shadow war for decades, with the war coming to a head over the past few months as Iran supports Hamas.

Iran-funded Hamas carried out the deadliest terror attack in Israel’s history on October 7.

The Jewish state then launched a massive ground invasion of the Gaza Strip, intending to secure their hostages from Hamas.

Israel has also sought to permanently remove the terror group from governing the territory.

On Saturday, Israel, with help from the U.S., the U.K., neighboring Jordan, and other nations, successfully intercepted nearly every missile and drone that Iran launched.

Israel boasted of a 99% success rate, through the use of its Iron Dome and David’s Sling systems.

Israel’s allies have urged any retaliation to be strikes in areas that would not result in human casualties and thus, likely avoiding further escalation.

Saturday’s attack was the first direct Iranian military attack on Israel.

Israel carried out limited strikes in Iran early Friday in retaliation for Tehran firing a barrage of missiles and drones at Israel late Saturday.

Fox News has confirmed there have been explosions in Isfahan province where Natanz is located though it is not clear whether it has been hit.

Natanz is the site of one of Iran’s nuclear facilities, though state television has described all sites in the area as “fully safe.”

A well-placed military source has told Fox that the strike was “limited.”

Sources familiar reportedly said the U.S. was not involved and there was pre-notification to the U.S. from the Israelis.

Pentagon officials have not confirmed the strike.
