Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon, who is currently on an official visit to the US, met with the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, John McCain, on Thursday. Ya'alon did not directly refer to a specific strike, however he did say that Israel was actively working to prevent a new terror front on the Golan: "Thanks to the vast funds that will soon flow to Iran after the removal of the sanctions, it will produce much more advanced weaponry, and buy advanced weapons systems which will be used to arm terror organizations in the area," he said.


Adding that, "They are arming Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Iran is working non stop to arm Hezbollah with advanced weapons. We will not allow the opening of a new front against us in the Golan, and when necessary we act against these intentions."
