Brandishing drone's 'piece' Benjamin Netanyahu tells Iran: Do not test Israel

Israel's prime minister has launched a stinging attack on Iran, telling a security conference in Munich it is the "greatest threat to our world".

He said it as a "cartoonish circus, which does not even deserve a response".

In addition to Netanyahu's accusations, Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir claimed during his speech at Munich on Sunday that Iran has trained several terrorist factions and conducted terrorist operations around the world.

Last week, Israel Defense Forces spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told CNN that Israel intercepted an Iranian unmanned drone that flew inside Israeli airspace. The pilots ejected over northern Israel.

Then, at Question Time, Netanyahu pulled out a map, in which Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Yemen appeared painted in Black, to show, according to prime minister, that Iran's presence increases as self-denominated Islamic State loses ground.

Mr. Netanyahu departed the German city of Munich on Sunday evening to return to Israel after addressing the Munich Security Conference on the danger of Iranian hegemony in the Middle East.

But he says "we will defend ourselves" and that "we are for peace, yet we will not stand for any threat and we will not accept any aggression".

"If they [Israel] carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground and will not give any opportunity to Netanyahu to flee", said Rezaei.

He also warned USA president Donald Trump during the interview that withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal would have affect the reputation of the U.S. as an global partner.

"Let's not repeat the mistakes of the past". Rather than preventing war, the Israeli leader said, their inaction "made a wider war inevitable and far more costly".

"Iran is not Nazi Germany".

'There has been one positive effect to Iran's growing aggression in our region. "Iran looks to destroy Israel and is developing ballistic missiles that can also reach Europe and the US".

Netanyahu also slammed the Iran nuclear deal which was primarily orchestrated by the Obama administration. We must speak clearly; we must act boldly.

"I don't care about the agreement, fixing it or nixing it".

Meanwhile around 50 people took part in a protest against the Iranian regime organised by the National Council of resistance of Iran on Munich's Stachus square in close proximity to the conference's venue, timed to coincide with Zarif's speech.

How could [Trump] be so wrong on so many basic facts about Iran? But Iran continues to try to cross those red lines. Without mentioning Israel, Al Jubeir accused Iran of regional expansionism and a long history of supporting terrorism. Zarif also warned against heeding Netanyahu's prediction that Tehran would "do nothing" if the USA were to pull out the nuclear deal.
