Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Wednesday cautioned that the satellite sent into orbit by Iran proved its military potential and was cause for concern for the international community. "The Iranian satellite is a technological achievement for the Iranians and a first step that proves military and intelligence ability and potential," Barak said in a statement. "This is yet another reason for the international community to tighten and increase sanctions against Iran."
