The Iranian Mashregh website reports that following the latest strike in Syria which Iran is blaming on Israel, Tehran has added Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s sons, Yair and Avner as future potential targets.
A number of terrorists were eliminated in the 27 Teves aerial assault, including Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of assassinated Hizbullah commander Imad Mughniyeh. Also killed in the attack was Iranian General Mohammed Ali Allahdadi.
The website shows a photo of the prime minister’s boys inside sniper scopes, with the crosshairs of the scope visible to viewers. The news website explained that since the two served in the IDF, they are also potential targets.

Interesting, how BIBI was so willing to sacrifice other peoples sons during the Gaza war but will worry about his sons.
In most Muslim countries, being somewhat undemocratic (to say the least), the son of national leader is likely to start his military career as a senior commander (not unheard, in medieval England and ancient Rome, sons of national leaders became instant generals – the idea being the yichus is more important than anything else – we sometimes use the same system in choosing hasidic leadership).
Killing a general is relatively easy, killing a private isn’t. A sniper (or drone) can pick out a bunch of high muckety-muck, but it is difficult to pick out a lowly trainee among a bunch of other trainees.
It should also be noted that most Israelis don’t especially care for Mr. Netanyahu (his best hope in the upcoming election is to get a quarter of the vote, and even that is a stretch).
Thus I respectfully suggest that the Iranian “threat” is total (would be deleted reference to the droppings of a male member of the cattle family).
It’s always been personal when we’re the target.
#1 how dare you!!! He gave his brother hy’d and both his sons served. Did you?
