Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu related to the IAF strike Sunday on an alleged terrorist in the Gaza Strip, saying at the start of Sunday's cabinet meeting that Israel's policy was clear and simple: those who strike Israel, or intend to do so,  will be hit hard in return.

Netanyahu also related to reports that Iran ordered a number of warships to approach US maritime borders, saying that the sanctions relief granted Iran did not moderate its aggressive policies, but rather led to the "exact opposite."



"This is what is happening," Netanyahu said. "The international community is reducing the sanctions, and Iran is increasing its aggression.""


"The Iranian foreign minister recently met with the head of Islamic Jihad, Iran continues to provide lethal weapons to terrorist organizations, continues butchering in Syria, and now has added the following:  the blatant and sharp attack by the Iranian ruler on the US, along with sending warships to the Atlantic Ocean."

Netanyahu was referring to a speech Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei gave Saturday, in which he slammed US policy toward Iran as "controlling and meddlesome" and said that the US was lying when it said it did not seek regime change in Iran.
