Israeli minister says strikes deter Iran


An Israeli cabinet minister says Iran knows "who not to mess with" because Israel is the only country in the world that is killing Iranian operatives.

Tzachi Hanegbi spoke to Israel Radio on Sunday after Iran's seizure of a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz. He was referring to Israel's strikes on Iranian targets in Syria.

Israel has long viewed Iran as its greatest threat and has urged Western countries to take stronger measures against Tehran.

Hanegbi, who serves as regional cooperation minister, said Israel has acknowledged just some of its strikes against Iranian targets in Syria.

He said, "the Iranians are very limited in their reactions and it's not because they don't have the capabilities, it's because they understand Israel means business."
