Ayalon: Iranian economy very vulnerable to sanctions

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Saturday that the Iranian economy is very susceptible to sanctions.
"Iran is a very vulnerable country and we can hurt it by by imposing tough economic sanctions. We can use this option as a viable alternative to a military strike."
Speaking at a conference in Beersheba, Ayalon added that Iran will be hurt further in the event that Syria's Bashar Assad falls. "I do no think that Assad will vanish in the near future. But it is clear that whoever replaces him will be preferable to the current regime. Iran will be hurt very much by the fall of Bashar Assad."
