Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at late former prime minister's Ariel Sharon's official state memorial on Thursday said Iran was behind yesterday's attack on IDF vehicles traveling close to the Lebanese border in which two Israeli soldiers were killed.
"This is the same Iran that is trying to reach an agreement whereby it will be allowed to maintain the ability to develop nuclear weapons. We are resolutely opposed to such an agreement," Netanyahu said.
"We will continue to defend ourselves from all threats both near and far," the prime minister said.
Referring to Sharon by his informal moniker "Arik," Netanyahu said the late former prime minister understood very well the nature of the Iranian regime, and that what Sharon said is still valid today.
