Israel’s prime minister urged the international community not to allow Iran to develop its nuclear capabilities, and tied the Jewish state's fight against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip to the larger global fight against Islamic State militants. The U.S. disagreed. A State Department spokeswoman said Washington believes the Islamic State group poses a different threat. VOA's Margaret Besheer has more on the Israeli leader's address to the U.N. General Assembly on Monday, and remarks by Syria's foreign minister on the fight against terror.
