A group of Israelis have gathered outside the house of the Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak to protest against a potential military strike against Iran.
The protesters gathered outside Barak’s home in Tel Aviv on Sunday.
“They are toying with human lives… One thing is certain – if we attack Iran, we will be led to war. We can’t drag Israel into war,” Ynetnews quoted Yifat Solel, one of the protestors, as saying.
“It’s inconceivable how badly those in office who are advocating an attack [against Iran] can disregard human lives – mine, yours, all of ours,” Solel added.
Israeli demonstrators, furious and concerned about a potential Israeli attack on Iran, have been gathering outside Barak’s house for the past three weeks.
“We’ve been demonstrating in front of the home of minister of war, Ehud Barak, and we will continue to demand… to stop the madness,” said Naomi Saroussi, another protester.
Iranian authorities have dismissed the repeated Israeli threats of military action against the Islamic Republic, warning that in case Israel makes the mistake of launching such an attack, it will spell the end of the Israeli regime.
A number of senior Iranian military commanders have also emphasized that in case of any attack on Iran, the conflict is certain to expand well beyond the region.
