IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi said on Tuesday that he does not count on inner Iranian opposition to halt the regime's nuclear development plans.

"If anyone hopes that opposition activity would weaken the Iranian government, he should realize that it is stable and strong and the nuclear program won't be fazed," he told Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee members.

Ashkenazi expressed hope that imposed sanctions will bring about the desired effect.
