Biden: Israel Will Not Attack Iran

The US vice president has cautioned Israel against launching a military attack against Iran, saying such a move would be an ill-advised decision.

“I don’t believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu would do that. I think he would be ill-advised to do that,” Joe Biden said on Tuesday in an interview with CNN when asked about possible Israeli strikes on Iranian nuclear sites.

“My level of concern is no different than it was a year ago,” AFP quoted Biden as saying.

Last week Netanyahu stated that Israel is commited to halting Iran’s nuclear program.

Biden’s remarks came a week after the top US commander in the Middle East, General David Petraeus, declared that Israel might decide to attack Iran to halt its nuclear program.

“The Israeli government may ultimately see itself so threatened by the prospect of an Iranian nuclear weapon that it would take preemptive military action to derail or delay it,” Petraeus said last Wednesday.
