Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented Thursday on the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

When asked about the allegations his country is behind last week's assassination of Iran’s chief nuclear scientist, Netanyahu said: “They always accuse us rightly or wrongly on anything that happens in Iran.”

“Our longstanding policy is not to comment on such things, so I’m not going to do that now,” he said during a virtual event with the Hudson Institute.

The Israeli Prime Minister stressed the importance of confronting Iran's policies in the region, warning of the consequences of the possible return of the United States to the nuclear agreement concluded between Tehran and the P5 + 1 in 2015.

On the other hand, Netanyahu referred to the developments in relations between Israel and some Arab countries in the past months, saying that Arab leaders "have realized during the last decade that Israel is not an enemy but an indispensable ally."
