Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Israel's existence depends on the IDF, at a passover event on Thursday.

"If our enemies laid down their arms there would be peace but that if we laid down our arms there would be no more Israel," Netanyahu said. "We know that not only peace but also our very existence depends on one thing – the defensive shield of the IDF."

"I have no doubt that just as our country faces threats that no other country in the world faces, it concentrates forces within it, the strength of the Jewish People, that will enable it to overcome any and all obstacles," he added.
