After a string of violent attacks on Iranian and Israeli targets, Israel’s president, Shimon Peres, has declared the national military will act in preventative self-defense in what he calls “an open war on Israel.” The president also stated that if it appears Syria’s chemical weapons may be a threat to Israel, they will seize the weapons by force.
From the article:
Iran is in an “open war” with Israel, President Shimon Peres said Monday, as he pointed the finger at Iran and Hezbollah for last week’s bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israelis.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, Peres said Israel would act to prevent further attacks.
Peres said Israel had “enough” hard intelligence to link the Bulgaria attack to Iran and its proxy Hezbollah and believes more attacks are being planned as part of what he called an “open war against Israel.”
