As Iran and world powers face less than two days to reach a framework nuclear deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday again attacked the emerging agreement for serving as "a reward for Iran's aggression."

Netanayhu, who has maintained a staunch stance against a nuclear Iran, warned that Israel among other "moderate and responsible" states in the Middle East would be the first to be affected by a deal that emerges from the current ongoing negotiation in Switzerland.

"The deal emerging in Lausanne [Switzerland] sends a message that there is no price for aggression, and in turn, that there is a reward for Iran's aggression," the premier lamented.

Turning to the recent unrest in Yemen, Netanyahu criticized negotiators from the so-called P5+1 powers for "turning a blind eye" to the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels that continue to occupy more territory in their pursuit to gain control of the country.

However, Netanyahu stressed that Israel would continue to stand up to all threats against the Jewish state.

"We will never close our eye and we will continue to operate against every threat in every generation, and of course in this generation," he charged.
