  • Iran's Zarif says Israel's 'myth of invincibility' has crumbled

"Through its proxies - Shiite militias in Iraq, the Houthis in Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza - Iran is devouring huge swaths of the Middle East", said Netanyahu.

Netanyahu also reiterated his view, shared by US President Donald Trump, that world powers needed to scrap or rewrite the 2015 nuclear accord with Tehran that curbs Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions in return for economic sanctions' relief.

On Sunday, Netanyahu used the conference venue in the Bavarian capital to draw an analogy between the Iran deal and the appeasement of Nazi Germany, associated with a treaty signed in Munich on the eve of World War II.

He was referring to a confrontation earlier this month between Israel and Iran in Syria that saw the Israeli military shoot down what it called an Iranian drone over occupied Golan Heights and carry out air strikes against "Iranian sites" deep in Syria.

Mohammad Javad Zarif took the stage Sunday at the Munich Security Conference a few hours after Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu held up what he said was a fragment of the drone and challenged Zarif to recognize it. You should, it's yours.

Tehran has denied that the drone belonged to Iran.

"Zarif said it was wrong to say Iran is radical".

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian foreign minister said Syria's shooting down of the Israeli jet had shattered Israel's "so-called invincibility".

Saying he had "a message to the tyrants of Tehran" during a speech at the Munich Security Conference, he warned: "Do not test Israel's resolve".

Zarif retaliated that Netanyahu's holding up of what he said was a drone was a "cartoonish circus" that did "not even deserve the dignity of a response".

"I was witness to the despicable pattern in which this media outlet tried to suck up to Prime Minister Netanyahu", said Dov Gil-Har, a former Walla journalist.

Lebanese Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf accused Israel of being hypocritical, saying that he'd had "an Israeli drone above my head for the past 15 years" and warning about any aggression from its neighbour.

"This is real, it's deep, it's broad: it doesn't necessarily cross the threshold of a formal peace, and I doubt that would happen until we get some formal progress with the Palestinians - so the two are linked", he added.
