The IDF will carry out orders to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities if it receives them from the government, Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz said Tuesday, dismissing reports that he is opposed to such a strike.“We tell the political echelon what we think and we will do what we are told,” Gantz said during a visit to the Tel Hashomer Military Induction Center. “None of the reports came from me.”In April, Gantz said that he believed Iran would ultimately refrain from developing a nuclear weapon. In private meetings he has also predicted that international pressure could potentially delay a possible confrontation with Iran until 2013.“Iran is continuing to provoke and to work to obtain a nuclear military capability,” Gantz said. “This is a major problem for the entire world and region and we should not ignore it since this is the only country in the world that is developing a nuclear weapon and calling for the destruction of another country. All options are on the table and this is not a slogan but a fact.”Gantz was referring to a report Tuesday morning in Yediot Aharonot citing US officials as claiming that the top defense leadership in Israel including Gantz, Mossad chief Tamir Pardo and Israel Air Force commander Maj.- Gen. Amir Eshel are opposed to an attack against Iran.“I am not in favor of discussing disagreements if there are such, but I am in favor of telling the government what I think,” he said.Gantz’s position on Iran has long been to hold off on military action and to give as much time possible for diplomacy and sanctions to try and stop Iran’s nuclear program.
