Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman addressed Iran's threats to attack Israel Tuesday afternoon.

"We are not looking for escalation, but we are preparing for every scenario. We will not tolerate threats on our border," Liberman said. "Israeli citizens can continue their routine and rely on the best army in the world."

Liberman was then asked about Trump's upcoming announcement on the Iran nuclear deal,

"I do not know what Trump will say tonight, he did not ask our advice," Liberman said, but clarified, "If the agreement is canceled, it's good for Israel.

Regarding the recent use of kites by terrorists in Gaza to set fire to Israeli fields, Liberman said: "They are trying to challenge us. We have found solutions against the tunnels and individual terror - and the kites will also have a response."
