Netanyahu says won’t let Iran get nukes

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said his country “will not allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.”

His comment comes following Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s announcement that Tehran will stop implementing some key provisions of its nuclear deal with major powers.

In a speech to mark Israel’s annual memorial day for fallen soldiers and victims of terror, Netanyahu said Israel will continue to fight its enemies and “we will embed our roots even deeper into our homeland.”

“That is what our heroes did at the dawn of the nation’s rebirth, and we are marching in their path,” he added.
