"Iran has already spread bloody conflicts across the Middle East, in Yemen, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon", Netanyahu told the annual General Assembly of the Jewish Federation of North America in Los Angeles via video conference, according to a statement issued by his office. The offer, predictably, was rejected by Iran, which has also declined offers from all other parties in the global community.

"I just saw the pictures of destruction in Iran and Iraq following this week's natural disaster".

I've said many times that we have no quarrel with the people of Iran.

He added: "Our quarrel is only with the tyrannical regime that holds them hostage and threatens our destruction".

Today (Wednesday), Shaykh Muwaffak Tarif, the spiritual leader of the Druze community in Israel, officially requested an urgent meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in light of recent events in the Golan Heights.

Ndidi ( 6/10) - Added value to the middle very well and nearly got a goal from one of his stray up front. The player has since returned to the team hotel with the rest of the squad.

According to The Times of Israel, Israel defence forces chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot made a trip to Brussels last Thursday to meet General Curtis Scaparrotti, head of the U.S. army's European command, to discuss Iranian influence in Syria.

Back in April 2015, Netanyahu officially admitted for the first time that the regime's military had conducted strikes in the Syrian territory.

Iran also rejected an Israeli offer of aid following a quake in the historic city of Bam in 2003 which killed 26,000 people.

A spokesman said: "We have an important, strategic, strong, collaborative relationship with Israel, and USA government delegations routinely visit Israel to coordinate on a wide range of issues".

"We urge you to come to Congress with a strategy for Syria that includes how the United States plans to prevent Iran from gaining a permanent foothold on Israel and Jordan's doorstep and to block Iranian arms exports to Hezbollah", the lawmakers concluded.
