Strike on Iran will haunt Israel: French foreign minister

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has warned the Israeli regime against attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities, saying that such an act of aggression will backfire overwhelmingly on the Tel Aviv regime.

“I think that if there were an Israeli attack, unfortunately it could come back to haunt Israel,” Fabius said on Monday.

The United States and Israel have repeatedly threatened Iran with a military option in an attempt to force the Islamic Republic to halt its nuclear energy program, which Washington and Tel Aviv claim includes a military component.

Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to use the nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Iranian officials have also promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the region.
