In his address to the UN General Assembly in NYC on Tuesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said, "We must speak the truth about Iran", explaining "Iran continues to vow to destroy my country every day". The new missile represents a leap forward in Iranian missile technology that puts the state of Israel right in the crosshairs. Trump echoed Flynn's remarks in tweets. "We will increase our military strength", he said.
