Prime Minister Netanyahu remarked that "today we see what is happening over the border - Iran's attempts to establish a military presence and the aggression of terrorist fanatics. We will continue to stand strong and determined against all of these... as long as it depends on me the Golan Heights will always remain under Israeli sovereignty because otherwise we would have Iran and Hizbollah on the shores of the Kinneret". Netanyahu went on to say that Israel "will continue to act with determination against Iran's attempts to open an additional front against us on the Golan Heights, and in Syria we will act against all attempts to transfer lethal weapons to Hizbollah in Lebanon".
