Israel acknowledged on Sunday that it carried out a weekend air strike on what it called an Iranian arms cache in Syria.
Netanyahu added that Israel had attacked Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria hundreds of times.
He praised the IDF chief's work against the manufacture of precision weapons in Lebanon, dismantling Hezbollah's attack tunnels during Operation Northern Shield, action against Hamas on the Gaza border and in thwarting hundreds of terrorist attacks in the West Bank.

Netanyahu, visiting the northern border later on Sunday, put the number at "between 1,000 and 2,000" Hezbollah fighters.
The latest tunnel, found on Saturday, began in the Lebanese village of Ramyeh, some 800 metres (yards) away from Israel, the army said.
The attacks against Iranian targets and not only on Hezbollah arms convoys, were authorised by cabinet in 2017, he explained in his interview to the USA newspaper.
It is believed the tunnels were allowing militants to sneak across the border and carry out attacks.
