Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday that Iran's nuclear program has accelerated recently as it appears Iran feels less international pressure, Israel Radio reported.
Netanyahu, speaking to EU ambassadors to Israel, also commented on the recent conflict that has broken out along Israel's border with Gaza, saying that Hamas deliberately fired a rocket at the school bus that was hit last Thursday, and that it was a criminal act. No country, the prime minister continued, can accept such action and Israel will act to protect its citizens.
The prime minister also requested the European delegates to do what is possible to prevent nationals from taking part in the flotilla to Gaza scheduled for mid-June.
