Israel Minister: Iran may attack Israel if US deadlock worsens

An Israeli cabinet minister warned on Sunday of imaginable direct or unusual Iranian attacks on Israel should the deadlock between Washington and Tehran accelerate. 

The United States has augmented military and economic pressure on Iran, with Donald Trump on Thursday advice its leaders to dialogue to him about giving up their nuclear program and saying he could not dismiss an armed hostility.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, which supports Trump’s hard tack against its arch-foe, has largely been discreet about the spiraling tensions.

Breaking silence, Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said that, in the Gulf, “Things are heating up”.

Steinitz, told in a news channel “If there’s some sort of conflagration between Iran and the United States, between Iran and its neighbors, I’m not ruling out that they will activate Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad from Gaza, or even that they will try to fire missiles from Iran at the State of Israel.”

The Israeli military declined to comment when asked if it was planning any preparations for possible pressures linked to the Iran-US standoff.

Israel has traded blows with Iranian forces in Syria, as well as with Palestinian militants and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Israel has not fought an open war with Iran, a country on the other side of the Middle East.
