June 16, 2016 15:46

Former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon said Thursday that Israel does not face any existential threat, ruling out even the threat posed by the Iranian regime.

"Iran's nuclear program, which is due to be frozen following the the [nuclear] deal was signed [by world powers] does not constitute an immediate existential threat for Israel," he said in an address to the 16th Annual Herzliya Conference.

Ya'alon addressed his recent departure from the position of defense minister, saying he remained determined to work toward maintaining Israel's security and that he will run in the country's next election.
