Iran does not have the capability to create a nuclear weapon at this point, due to technological difficulties it has recently been facing, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon told Israel Radio on Wednesday morning.

Ya’alon, who is also strategic affairs minister, estimated that Teheran would be capable of creating a nuclear bomb within three years.

In addition, Ya’alon mentioned that Jordan and Egypt, along with Israel, fear a Hamas takeover in the West Bank.

According to the strategic affairs minister, the US and Europe are straying away from the idea of unilaterally establishing a Palestinian state.

Addressing the recent escalation in violence along the Gaza Strip, Ya’alon said he did not think a large-scale conflict would erupt in the area, since Hamas had no interest in damaging its security.
