“This morning, on my way here, I heard that Iran intends to pursue its nuclear programme,” Netanyahu said in a speech marking Israel’s Memorial Day. “We will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weaponry. We will continue to fight those who would kill us.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated on Wednesday that his nation is committed to preventing Iran from attaining a nuclear weapon.

The Israeli Prime Minister reiterated Israel's long-held position after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced he was scaling back some of his country's commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal.

“This morning, on my way here, I heard that Iran intends to pursue its nuclear programme,” Netanyahu said in a speech marking Israel’s Memorial Day. “We will not allow Iran to achieve nuclear weaponry. We will continue to fight those who would kill us.”

Netanyahu, who was recently appointed Prime Minister for the fifth time, has become more aggressive in his rhetoric against the Islamic Republic, often vowing to counter Iran wherever they are in the world. 

While Israel has avoided any military targets inside of Iran, they have attacked the Islamic Republic's forces and allied Hezbollah on numerous occasions inside Syria. 

The Israeli leader has previously applauded the Trump administration for withdrawing from the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal and designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist entity.
