Israel Preparing For Offensive Options Against Iran 'If And When' Needed

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz stated during an interview with Channel 12 News that Israel is preparing for offensive options against Iran "if and when" they are needed and warned Iran "I suggest that the Iranians not test these capabilities".


Tensions between Israel and Iran escalated further after a top Iranian officer was assassinated in Tehran last month, an assassination which Iran blames Israel for.
"We are in contact with the relevant Turkish authorities, and we are of course mainly preparing offensive capabilities, if and when they are needed," Ganz said. "I suggest that the Iranians not test these capabilities".

He also added "We are currently witnessing Iranian attempts to attack Israelis in various overseas locations. Our new rule: Whoever sends, pays. We will continue to strike those who send the terrorists, and those who send them".
