Prime Minister Naftali Bennett remarked that “the level of sophistication and determination from our enemies has increased. But they appreciate, not from statements but from actions, that our determination is many times stronger than theirs, that we are more sophisticated then them, and we do not hesitate to act when needed”. Describing the Iranian government as “violent and fanatical”, Bennett contended that “this is a regime that one should not do business with. Regrettably, that is not the case… We will continue to consult with our friends, persuade, discuss and share information and insights out of mutual respect. But at the end of the day, we will be responsible for our own fate, nobody else”.
