Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) on Monday said "there's no daylight" between him and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when it comes to Iran.

In an question-and-answer session with Jerusalem Post editor-in-chief Yaakov Katz at the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, Herzog stressed that the global community should acknowledge the fact that the Islamic Republic is capable of a nuclear weapons breakout in 10 years under the current atomic deal with world powers. Herzog added that he has made efforts to inform world leaders of the dangers of the regime in Tehran and its regional terror activities.

The opposition leader said that the two main forces of danger in the region are Iran and Islamic State, indicating that Israel has a "rare opportunity" to work with outside powers to counter the threats.
