“They said that we could defend ourselves against those attacks.

And that’s exactly what the State of Israel has done,” he said.

He continued: “And we are as powerful as we’ve [ever] been before.

We’re economically successful as we’ve never been before.

And we take our economic power and our military might and we weld them together to have unprecedented diplomatic flourishing of Israel’s relations around the world.”

Earlier on Monday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry publicly threatened to retaliate for last week’s deadly strike on one of its military installations in Syria.
