Netanyahu warns against Iranian threat during Argentina visit

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu referred to the Iranian threat in a speech delivered at the Jewish Community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina Monday (11th).

“Two and a half-decades ago, Iran was the one who set off the fuse of the explosive that hit Argentina twice,” he said.  “Iran initiated, planned and carried out the terrible terror attacks through Hizbullah, who blew up the Israeli Embassy in 1992, and the AMIA Jewish Community Center in 1994, killing 85.”

Netanyahu thanked President Mauricio Macri for his willingness to push for a thorough investigation into the attacks and said that “the time has come to impose full responsibility on Iran.”
