He said “In the diplomatic sphere, I intend to emphasize the need for a common front against Iran’s defiant aggression which has raised its head in recent days.”

Iran and Israel are bitter enemies. Netanyahu vehemently opposes the 2015 deal that imposed curbs on Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for lifting sanctions. He says it won’t stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

The deal does not include provisions against missile tests.

The Trump administration later ordered some sanctions against Iran in retaliation for the missile test.
