Israel Responds to Jafari’s Comments

From Israel, the former head of the Israeli intelligence agency, Shabtai Shavit, today told The Telegraph that Israel has one year to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, or it faces the risk of coming under nuclear attack by the Islamic Republic.

Shavit’s comment came after IRGC Commander Maj. Gen. Jafari on Saturday warned Israel not to attack Iran, saying Israel was well within range of Iranian missiles.

“As an intelligence officer working with the worst-case scenario, I can tell you we should be prepared. We should do whatever necessary on the defensive side, on the offensive side, on the public opinion side for the West, in case sanctions don't work. What's left is a military action,” Shavit said.
