“I repeat: Anyone who harms us - we will hurt him even more, and whoever is prepared to harm us - we will act to harm him earlier. This is what we did and will continue to do.”
 
Reiterating a demand voiced by Israel in the past months, Netanyahu urged the international community "to prevent Iran's al-Quds Force from entrenching itself in Syria."
