Likud minister: Iran attack gives Israel international legitimacy to hit back with unprecedented force

Sam Sokol is the Times of Israel's political correspondent. He was previously a reporter for the Jerusalem Post, Jewish Telegraphic Agency and Haaretz. He is the author of "Putin’s Hybrid War and the Jews"

This evening’s attack against Israel gives Jerusalem the right to launch its own strong attack against Iran, states Culture Minister Miki Zohar.

“Israel received broad international legitimacy tonight to strike Iran with unprecedented force,” he says in a statement, adding that Iran’s “extremist regime has taken off its gloves” and that Israel “must not be lax against the head of the snake that is working to destroy Israel.”
