DM Gantz: Israel Can Seriously Harm and Delay Iran’s Nuclear Program

Says Iran is a 'global problem'

Talking up the military option in Iran, Israeli DM Benny Gantz says that Israel has the ability to cause serious damage and delay Iran’s nuclear program, and expects international support if they do.

“Iran is a global problem,” Gantz noted. “It is not just Israel’s private problem.” Israel seems to think that regional support will make attacks easier.

That may be the case. The Saudi Arabia / GCC nations would probably let Israel use their airspace for the attacks, but Iraq almost certainly wouldn’t.

Even nations willing to look the other way probably wouldn’t publicly endorse a strike, as Israeli aggression is a serious matter of controversy in the region.
