Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid has emphasized the country’s right to attack Iran regardless of the US decisions and policies about the Islamic Republic.

According to Iran International’s correspondent, Lapid reiterated during the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday that the US and Israel do not “necessarily agree on the need for a credible military threat against Iran at the present time.”

“We came and asked to introduce a credible military threat during President Biden’s [July] visit,” Lapid said, adding that “We want the basis [for world power’s negotiations with Iran] to be a credible military threat. We didn’t necessarily agree on this with the Americans.”

He noted that he “made it clear to the president and his team that Israel opposes the nuclear deal and maintains complete freedom to act, diplomatically and operationally, in the face of the Iranian nuclear program.”

Israel has recently announced that it will try until the very last moment to make the United States reject the nuclear deal. 

Lapid had earlier said that Israel is leading “an intensive campaign” meant to prevent the signing of “a dangerous” nuclear deal between Iran and world powers but not to the point of rupture.

Earlier in the month, Mossad chief David Barnea said he shared "sensitive intelligence materials" with heads of CIA, FBI, Pentagon and other top officials to warn US against being cheated by the Islamic Republic’s lies.
