(Israel Hayom / Worthy News)-- The Middle East is facing "dramatic instability in the entire region, and we must remain alert and prepared," IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz said Monday at the annual Herzliya Conference.
In his address, Gantz gave an overview of the conflicts in the Middle East, which he described as "terribly agitated in recent years." He began with the Iranian threat, saying that Iran's advanced nuclear aspirations have not diminished.
"I am convinced that Iran must be stopped before it achieves nuclear power, which, in turn, will spark an arms race. With the help of the international community, we can make it so that Iran will never get there, be it by use of force or without use of force. Iran must not achieve nuclear power."
