According to Ravid’s sources, representatives of the Israeli Army said they had received orders from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon to prepare for a potential unilateral attack on Iran despite ongoing peace talks between Iran and the P5+1 group of Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States, and Germany.
The amount set aside in the 2014 budget is comparable to that set aside in 2013. Writing for AntiWar.com, Jason Ditz says this suggests that the “government is using the perennial threat of launching a unilateral war as a way to throw billions of realistically unallocated funds at the IDF without parliamentary oversight.”
