Israel is prepared to act alone against Iran if needed, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid warned hours before the eighth round of talks to revive the 2015 Iran deal began in Vienna on Monday evening. “Of course, we prefer to act in international cooperation, but if necessary, we will act alone,” Lapid told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. “We will defend ourselves by ourselves,” he emphasized.

“We have presented our allies with quite a bit of firm intelligence” about Iran’s nuclear program, Lapid said. This was not just “opinions and positions, but concrete intelligence that proves Iran is deceiving the world in a completely systematic way,” Lapid said.

“All they [Iran] care about is that sanctions are lifted and billions of dollars are poured into its nuclear program” and that funds are funneled to “Hezbollah, Syria, Iraq [and] the terrorist network they have deployed around the world,” Lapid said. Iran immediately accused Israel of sabotaging the talks.
