Biden win means war with Iran, warns Israeli minister

Israel's settlements minister is one of the many officials who want Donald Trump to retain the US presidency, in large part because of his Iran policies.

An Israeli minister said there could be an Israel-Iran war if Joe Biden wins the US presidency. Settlements Minister Tzachi Hanegbi said on Wednesday that if Biden returns to the Iran deal, Israel and Iran will go to war.

“Biden has said openly for a long time that he will go back to the nuclear agreement,” Hanegbi said, reported The Jerusalem Post. “I see that as something that will lead to a confrontation between Israel and Iran.”
