Sneh: Israel can count on no one

A week after threatening to launch a preemptive strike against Iran's nuclear sites, Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh said Monday that Israel could not count on international partners to act on its behalf. "We can only count on ourselves," he said during a conference organized by the Israel Management Center on Israeli defense industries in Herzliya. "Partnerships with foreigners are good for business but we cannot lose, because of them, the element of surprise."
