Sanctions against Iran are working but need to be strengthened, Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom asserted in an interview with Army Radio Friday morning.

With respect to the ramifications of a potential attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, Shalom said that "it is impossible to fully account for the tens of thousands of rockets that would be launched at Israel" following a military strike, but stated that Israel nonetheless would have a "legitimate right" to retaliate against infrastructure in "Syria, Lebanon or Gaza" if attacked.

He concluded by reiterating that Israel has for a very long time been warning the international community that the "Iranians are deceiving the entire world.
