Netanyahu also related for the first time to the reports of the killing of hundreds of Syrian civilians by chemical weapons on Wednesday. This act was added to other grave crimes that the Syrian regime carried out against Syrian citizens with the assistance of Iran and Hezbollah.

Netanyahu characterized as "absurd" a situation where UN investigators, who are now in Damascus to investigate the possible previous use of chemical weapons, are prevented by the Syrian regime from going to the newly affected area.

"We need to understand," Netanyahu said, "Syria is Iran's testing ground. Iran is watching carefully how the world responds to the crimes of its proxies Syria and Hezbollah." Netanyahu said these events prove again that it is forbidden for the world's most dangerous regimes to gain possession of the world's most dangerous weapon
