Gallant: Conflict between Iran and the U.S. Could Directly Affect Israel

(Ynet News) In response to the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear agreement, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yoav Gallant, a member of Israel's Security Cabinet, said Tuesday: "When the Iranians realize they shouldn't mess with Trump, and when they face harsh sanctions - meaning anyone who trades with Iran doesn't trade with the U.S. - it would have far-reaching consequences. I hope they return to their natural place and become a nation that acts like other nations and stop supporting terrorism." Gallant compared the Iran nuclear deal to the Munich Agreement that Europe signed with the Nazis in 1938, "which only postponed the war by a year, and they got that war under far worse conditions." Gallant said a conflict between Iran and the U.S. could directly affect Israel. "If an armed conflict erupts between the U.S. and Iran, the weapon Iran would try to use against the U.S. would be Hizbullah against Israel. We're prepared for such a scenario."
