IDF officer: Nuclear Iran would deter against war in Gaza

A nuclear-armed Iran could deter Israel from going to war in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip against Tehran's terrorist allies, a IDF officer said on Tuesday.
OC Planning Directorate head Maj.-Gen. Amir Eshel echoed leaders in Jerusalem who argue that c nuclear-armed Iran could create a "global nuclear jungle" and fuel arms races in an already volatile Middle East.
Eshel made clear that Israel worries that Syria and Lebanon's Hezbollah militia as well as Hamas in the Gaza Strip could one day find reassurance in an Iranian bomb.
