Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the targeting of Qasem Soleimani:
“Just as Israel has the right of self defense, the United States has exactly the same right.
Qasem Soleimani is responsible for the death of American citizens and many other innocent people. He was planning more of such attacks.
President Trump deserves all the credit for acting swiftly, forcefully, decisively. Israel stands with the United States in its just struggle for peace, security and self defense.
