Gantz affirms Israeli right to self-defense amid Iran row

Defense Minister Benny Gantz says Israel’s freedom of action against Iran or any other enemy is not being harmed due to its commitment to coordinate with the US, responding to a claim from opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I affirm that Israel will continue to preserve for itself its right to defend itself against any threat in any place,” he says.

“The former prime minister’s use of intimate conversations with our closest ally for political means is shameful and dangerous,” he charges.
