‘In the latest spat between Tel Aviv and Tehran, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has warned the Islamic Republic that it will endanger itself if it threatens Israel. It comes after Iran’s supreme leader said that the “Zionist regime” wouldn’t exist in 25 years.

During a visit with Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev on Wednesday, Netanyahu was asked by the Kazakh leader if he wanted to send a message to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who is scheduled to visit Kazakhstan next week.

In response, Netanyahu said: “Don’t threaten us, we are not a rabbit, we are a tiger. If you threaten us, you endanger yourself.”’
