An Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities would not necessarily prevent Iran from eventually acquiring nuclear weapons, according to a British think-tank, Reuters reported Thursday.

Oxford Research Group said military action should not be used as a response to Iran's possible nuclear weapons ambitions."An Israeli attack on Iran would be the start of a protracted conflict that would be unlikely to prevent the eventual acquisition of nuclear weapons by Iran and might even encourage it," it said in a report, as cited by Reuters.
