(Israel Hayom via JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that Israel’s enemies will be “dealt a crushing blow” if they attempt to attack it.

The prime minister commented, “Qassem Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of countless innocent people over the past few decades. He spread fear of suffering and planned future attacks; many Middle Eastern leaders think so.”

“It is important to say that Israel completely stands with the United States,” Netanyahu continued, adding that the Islamic Republic “wants to seize large parts of the region. It wants to eliminate us. It understands that Israel is the largest and most powerful Western force in the region. Israel is the anchor. Anyone who tries to attack us will suffer a crushing blow.”
