With a theatrical flourish, Netanyahu brandished a rectangular piece of dark green metal at the podium.
Israeli officials were keen not to even mention Syria during this attack, however, presenting everything that happened as having been done against Iran.
Syria "was able to use its own means to bring down one of their planes", he said, referring to last weekend's clashes involving an Iranian drone launched from Syria, a downed Israeli jet and retaliatory airstrikes.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia and Israel delivered twin warnings to Iran, telling a global security conference it's time to confront the Islamic Republic's encroachment on the Middle East, Bloomberg reported.
Addressing the audience at the annual Munich Security Conference, Netanyahu said Zarif, who was due to speak after him, was the "smooth-talking mouthpiece of Iran's regime".
The immediate trigger is last week's confrontation - the first known direct engagement between the Israeli and Iranian militaries.
Yesterday's gesture comes scarcely a week after military escalation in Syria raised questions about Israel's mantle of military supremacy in the Middle East.

Papadakis and Cizeron have an elegant, lyrical style while Moir and Virtue are known for their sensuality and energy on the ice. Virtue and Moir led after Monday's short programme, in which Papadakis suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
At one point during his speech, Netanyahu held up what he said was a piece of an Iranian drone shot down by Israel over its territory earlier this month. "Israel will act not just against Iran's proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself".
Responding to the critics the Iran Foreign minister dismissed the allegations of hegemon instead affirmed that they believe in strong nations which would contribute to stability of regions.
Such moves by the United States and Israel indicate their plummeting position and reveals that their conditions in the face of Iran have become more complicated, General Salami explained.
Lebanon's Defence Minister Yacoub Riad Sarraf who spoke after Mr Netanyahu, said: "Watch out, we will defend ourselves ... we also have friends". "Do you recognize it?" He said Iran doesn't "want to be the hegemon in the region" and, in a warning directed at the USA, threatened that his country will "respond seriously" if global powers scrap the nuclear deal with Iran.
Zarif also accused Israel of using "aggression as a policy against its neighbors" and carrying out "daily incursions into Syria, Lebanon".
Netanyahu's tough tone on Iran and the 2015 nuclear deal echoed that of the US national security adviser a day earlier at the conference.
Israel is "absolutely resolute in our determination to stop and roll back the aggression of Iran's regime".
