Former minister Tzachi Hanegbi said Thursday that Israel is facing 50 of the most fateful days in the history of the State of Israel, speculating about a potential Israeli military strike on Iran.

"Prime Minister [Binyamin Netanyahu] will have to make decisions, all of which will have costly repercussions," Hanegbi was quoted by Makor Rishon as saying. "When we say a [military] conflict has a price, we do so because we want to avoid making our children and grandchildren pay that price."

Hanegbi said, though, that the alternative could also be costly. "Reconciling with a nuclear Iran has a cost, the practical implications of which would be a nuclear arms race in the entire Middle East."
