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 Wednesday morning.

Ya'alon estimated that Teheran will have the capability to create a nuclear bomb within the next three years.In addition, Ya'alon mentioned that Jordan and Egypt, along with Israel, fears a Hamas takeover in the West Bank.

According to the Minister of Strategic Affairs, 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 that he does not think a large-scale conflict will erupt in the region since Hamas has no interest in deteriorating their security.
