Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the ministers at the beginning of the cabinet meeting: "Our aggressive policy against terror is summed up in a simple principle. He who harms us, who has harmed us, or who plans to harm us – let him reap what he sows."
Regarding Iran, the prime minister said: "Sanction relief for Iran has not moderated the country's aggressive international stance. It continues to supply lethal weapons to terrorist organizations and has sent a warship to the Atlantic Ocean. Essentially, the international community decreases the sanctions and Iran increases its aggressiveness." (Noam 'Dabul' Dvir)
