Opposition leader Shaul Mofaz warned Saturday that a preemptive unilateral Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities could have "catastrophic" consequences for Israel.

Speaking in a interview with Channel 2, Mofaz said that such an attack would not greatly hinder Iran's ability to create a nuclear weapon and it was very likely that such an attack would lead to war.

Mofaz stated that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak's posing a nuclear Iran as an "existential threat" to Israel alone was "manipulative." The Kadima leader stated that the world had to be enlisted to continue to place sanctions on Iran.
