Likud MK Tzachi Hanegbi said Saturday that in the absence of a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, Israel should carry out a strike on the Islamic Republic by the end of the year, adding that the government would have the full backing of his party on the matter. “Iran is an existential threat. We give full backing to this government if the decision is made to strike. We are approaching the crossroads of a decision on the Iranian issue,” the former minister said at a cultural event.

“If there is no agreement between Iran and the world powers, we should attack Iran by the end of 2021,” he said. Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has been sharply critical of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, particularly on the matter of Iran. The premier has responded that his predecessor’s government was stagnant on the issue.

Really that's interesting.
Well in the Israel & Middle East Breaking News article:
Yamina drops to zero seats in latest poll, it stated that the budget needed to be passed by Thursday or there could be snap elections changing the government.

In that budget is 1.5 Billion (5 Billion shekels) that IDF would use to train for striking Iran's nuclear infrastructure.

I guess it'll be interesting to see what happens with the budget this week and the lack of Yamina support. If the budget passes then a strike on Iran could be imminent ?..

If the budget doesn't pass, possible snap election leads to Israel trying to form a new Govt in the midst of also dealing strategically with Iran, after already making public their intent to strike Iran..
