The former Israeli prime minister said Iran had to “cool down” amid nuclear threats from Tehran.
Iran is frustrated by an alleged Cyber attack it says was carried out by Israel, which sabotaged one of Iran’s most important facilities for enriching nuclear power.
“I’m not sure Israel did, and I would advise the Iranians to cool down,” former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in an interview with WABC radio program The Rita Cosby Show.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would enrich its uranium to 60 percent in response to the attack.
“This is apparently a crime committed by the Zionists. “If the Zionists act against our nation, we will respond,”
“It does not really scare us. We are not so afraid of Iran … I do not think Israel has a reason to be afraid. But this very violent rhetoric, these threats, are unnecessary and will not be useful to anyone, Said Olmert in the interview.
The threats come as the United States is in the process of initiating indirect talks with Iran to rejoin the nuclear deal.
Olmert said he trusts it President BidenJoe BidenIRS to roll out payments for .000 child tax credit in July Capitol Police told not to use most aggressive tactics in rebellion response, according to report will keep Israel’s interest in mind amid the growing tension between the countries.
“I never had any doubt about his (Biden) firmness and his determination and his commitment to Israel’s security,” Olmert said.
