Israel's deputy prime minister has claimed Iran is developing a missile with a 10,000-kilometer range which is capable of reaching Britain or even
the US East Coast.
According to The New York Times, Moshe Ya'alon added that the missile is clearly meant to target the United States, “although a missile that could
be fired such a distance could also strike Britain.”
Addressing the annual Herzliya national security conference in Israel, Ya'alon also claimed that site where an explosion happened on November 12,
2011 is where the long-range missile are being developed.
Following the Israeli claim on Thursday, the British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said he was worried that the US and Israel would 'take matters
into their own hands' and launch a military strike against Iran.'
Asked if he was concerned that Israel would attack Iran, Clegg said, “Of course I worry that there will be a military conflict and that certain
countries might take matters into their own hands.”
