Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday December 17, 2018, that Israel's air industry is developing missiles with “special capabilities that no other country has,” capable of reaching any point in the Middle East.
“They are developing offensive missiles here that can reach anywhere in the area and any target,” Netanyahu said, according to a statement from his office. “This is the offensive power of the State of Israel, which is very important for us in all sectors.”
“IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries ) knows how to get anywhere it decides and anywhere we need for the good of the country,” he said. “The sky is not the limit.”
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif denounced Netanyahu’s open boasting of offensive missiles, posting a tweet saying: “First, Netanyahu stands next to nuclear BOMB factory and threatens Iran with annihilation. Now, he openly boasts about his “OFFENSIVE" missiles that can reach anywhere.”
First, Netanyahu stands next to nuclear BOMB factory and threatens Iran with annihilation. Now, he openly boasts about his “OFFENSIVE" missiles that can reach anywhere. And he still whines about Iran's Deterrent and DEFENSIVE missiles, and the West parrots his “concerns".— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) December 18, 2018
