Silvan Shalom: Intensify Sanctions on Iran


Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom made it clear, Friday, that sanctions against Iran's nuclear development program are working but must be intensified.

Referring to the aftermath of an attack on Iran during an interview by Israel Defense Forces Radio, Shalom said,  "I do not think we can fully take into account that tens of thousands of rockets will be launched towards Israel. Even if this happens, Israel has the legitimate right to act against all the facilities of the infrastructure, if it's in Syria, if it's in Lebanon or [it's] in Gaza. We have been warning the international community for a very long time. The Iranians are deceiving the whole world."
