Cabinet Member Warns Iran Could Attack Israel If U.S. Standoff Continues
According to a report by Reuters, on Sunday, an Israeli cabinet minister warned of potential direct or proxy attacks by Iran on Israel if the stand-off between Tehran and Washington should escalate.
Reuters reports that the United States has increased its economic and military pressure on Iran, with President Donald Trump urging Iranian leaders to abandon their nuclear program and claiming that an armed confrontation cannot be ruled out.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, which supports Trump’s hard tack against its arch-foe, has reportedly been reticent about the escalating tensions.
