"We will not let Iran establish military bases in Syria and we will not let Iran develop nuclear weapons," Xinhua quoted Netanyahu as saying

"The Israeli Air Force plays a crucial role in implementing this policy and it has done so consistently and effectively now for the past several years," he said.

Netanyahu appreciated the "strong leadership" of United States President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's 12-point plan to block Iran's aggression.

"I can tell you with confidence that the appreciation that I just expressed is shared, broadly shared, by many others in the Middle East."

"This is not just an Israeli position. I hope that this clear American message was well understood in Tehran. And like the US, we in Israel have no quarrel with the people of Iran," said Netanyahu.
