Ya’alon on ‘bad deal’ with Iran: Israel must be prepared to defend itself

The World Powers’ deal with Iran is a bad one, ignoring that Tehran continues to develop long-range missiles and sponsor terrorism, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said at the opening of a Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting Monday.

"Even if there are some last-minute improvements, the agreement as we understand it is bad, allowing Iran to legitimately be a nuclear threshold state, with all that implies," Ya’alon said.

The defense minister warned that the agreement could spark an arms race in the Middle East, saying that Saudi Arabian, Egyptian and Turkish officials have talked about the need to arm their countries.
