General: Obama Stopped Strike on Iran
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu planned airstrikes targeting Iran’s nuclear program, but called them off following a request from United States President Barack Obama, General (res.) Giora Eiland has reportedly revealed.
The Mida website quoted statements reportedly made by Eiland, the former head of the National Security Council, in a closed conference on defense.
According to Eiland, “The Prime Minister thought that we had reached the point where a decision had to be made on Iran, and he planned an attack.”
