Israel is unlikely to attack Iran’s nuclear sites, Shimon Peres said. Asked over the weekend whether Israel might launch a pre-emptive strike to prevent its archenemy gaining the means to make nuclear weapons, the vice premier said: “We must never consider such a thing.” “Israel has never shown aggressive intentions. It has none,” he told Israel’s Channel 2 television.
