(Worthy News) - Iran intends to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles to ultimately strike the United States and not Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned during a live webcast addressing the U.S. Jewish community Tuesday.
"Iran's terrorist regime continues to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles," Netanyahu told Jewish supporters opposed to the Iranian nuclear deal.
That agreement, intended by Western powers to rein in Iran's nuclear weapons development program, will give Iran open access to world markets, billions of dollars in funds and more. Meanwhile, Iranian leaders have claimed it does not even require them to dismantle their facilities.
"I want to make it clear to you," Netanyahu continued. "Iran is not building these ICBMs to hit Israel. They already have missiles that can hit Israel everywhere. They are building these ICBMs to hit you. To hit the United States." [ Source ]
