Iran won’t develop nukes: Israeli defence chief
The head of Israel’s armed forces says he does not think Iran will develop nuclear weapons.
In an interview with an Israeli newspaper, Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz says he thinks the current Iranian leadership is very rational.
His public stance is unusual, especially as they run counter to the views of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
General Gantz said it would be a huge mistake for the Iranian government to go ahead with building a nuclear weapon and does not think it wants to go the extra mile.
He also said he thought the international sanctions against Iran were starting to bear fruit.
