The most recently retired IDF chief of staff, Lt.-Col (ret.) Gabi Ashkenazi, has added his voice to the chorus of former defense officials saying that there was no need for a military strike on Iran's nuclear program at this time.

In video footage taken by a Makor Rishon journalist and aired on Channel 2 Thursday evening, Ashkenazi told a lecture hall that "we're still not there," adding that a metaphorical nuclear suitcase was not about to be sent in Israel's direction from Iran.
