Rafsanjani: Israel needs US permission to hit Iran

Israel requires the permission of the United States if it wants to carry out a strike on Iran, former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani said Monday according to Iranian media.
“Israel cannot attack Iran on its own," Rafsanjani said according to Iran's semi-official Mehr news agency. "If it attacks (Iran), it must be sure that the United States will join it, either at the beginning (of the war) or during (the war). Therefore, it needs the United States’ permission.”
