In the wake of a deadly attack this week by Iran's terror proxy Hezbollah, Prime Minister Netanyahu stressed on Friday that Israel will stand strong in the face of the continuous threat of attacks ordered by the Islamic Republic. 

The premier has blamed Iran for the Hezbollah attack on Israel's northern border that killed two IDF soldiers and wounded seven others.

"We are in an ongoing struggle with the same ​​Iran that opens new fronts against us, that instigates terrorism throughout the Middle East and around the world," the premier said while visiting wounded IDF soldiers from Wednesday's strike near the Lebanon border.

Netanyahu spoke at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa about his opposition to any nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers that would allow Tehran to develop nuclear weapons.
