The global nuclear deal with Iran has emboldened Tehran to become increasingly aggressive in the region, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday, warning that Iran should "not test Israel's resolve". Israel retaliated for the incursion by striking the Iranian base in Syria - Iran is one of the regime's main backers - from which the drone was operated.
This month alone, USA aircraft killed as many as 200 Russian mercenaries as they attacked Kurdish forces in eastern Syria; Turkey threatened to expand its invasion of northern Syria to take on Kurds embedded with United States advisers; and Israel shot down an Iranian drone that entered its airspace.
Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? "You should, it's yours".
Last week, Israel lost a combat aircraft to hostile fire as it returned from air strikes in Syria, an incident that reportedly began with an Iranian military drone entering Israeli territory.
Israel accuses Iran of plotting a permanent military presence in Syria, where Iranian-backed forces now support the Syrian government in the ongoing civil war in the country.
For Mr Netanyahu, who is fighting corruption charges at home and may welcome the opportunity to flex some foreign policy muscle, the Munich symposium provided an opportunity to sound the alarm on rising Iranian power and gather support to defeat it.
Iran also is hiding the "casings for the bullets" at military sites, which the nuclear deal has placed out of bounds to inspectors, Netanyahu said. Tension between Israel and Lebanon has increased as Hezbollah has gained strength fighting in Syria, and the two countries also have a maritime border dispute.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that combating Iran's attempts to establish a foothold on the ground is important in the context of an upcoming USA decision on the nuclear deal with Iran.
Netanyahu also lauded the positive effect that Iranian aggression has had on uniting regional powers.
He also warned U.S. president Donald Trump during the interview that withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal would have affect the reputation of the USA as an worldwide partner.
"Now there has been one positive outcome of Iran's growing aggression in the region".
