IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz said Friday that the Iranian threat can be neutralized if both Israel and the international community take a responsible stance on the issue. "Iran is working on a nuclear program for its military. This warrants concern... But the threat is not only directed towards Israel. The countries in our immediate proximity, and indeed beyond, are all threatened by this."
Speaking to a group of high-school students in Be'er Tuvia, Gantz called for adequate domestic and international preparation against the Iranian nuclear threat, but refused to elaborate on the kind of measures he was referring to.
