Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz asserted that “Israel has a clear objective: that Iran not be nuclear. It is not just an Israeli interest. It is first and foremost a global and regional interest”. He further noted that “the IDF and Israel’s defence establishment are holding onto the option of taking action against Iran’s nuclear project if that is what has to be done… I hope it doesn’t come to that”. “I want the public in Iran to understand me: I don’t have anything against them… But the regime’s support of terrorism, of Hizbollah, of the Huthis demands action”, Gantz warned.
