Gantz: We will oppose a ‘bad’ Iran deal, but discreetly

Defense Minister Benny Gantz says the new Israeli government will continue to oppose the US reentry into the Iran nuclear deal — but discreetly.

He criticizes Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks openly clashing with the Biden administration on Iran.

“We will continue to work with the administration and strengthen our ties so that Iran will not obtain nuclear weapons. We will influence them so that the deal, if it is signed, will set Iran back,” says Gantz.

“Obviously, we will oppose a bad deal… but we will do it in the proper forum and with the appropriate means, and not from the Knesset podium,” says Gantz.

He says Israel will retain the option of carrying out a military strike on Iran.
