Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this evening:
"In a major operational effort, we have thwarted an attack against Israel by the Iranian Quds force and Shi'ite militias. I reiterate: Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every sector against the Iranian aggression. 'If someone rises up to kill you, kill him first.' I have directed that our forces be prepared for any scenario. We will continue to take determined and responsible action against Iran and its proxies for the security of Israel."
