Israel delivered a harsh blow to Iranian and Syrian forces on Saturday, and has shown that, from its point of view, the rules of the game have not changed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.

Speaking before the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that the unchangeable “rules of action” are that “we will continue to harm anyone who attempts to harm us.” He said that this was Israel's policy in the past, and remains its policy now.

Netanyahu also praised the country for the unity it showed Saturday following the incursion of the Iranian drone and the developments that followed.

“Yesterday we proved again that in the moments in which we are tested, we know how to unite, repel our enemies and protect our country,” he said.


Netanyahu said that he spoke just before the meeting with the navigator of the F-16 that was downed, who was lightly wounded.

“I was glad to hear that he was on his feet, literally, and I was glad to hear that the pilot [who was seriously wounded] had improved,” he said.
