Iran is in an "open war" with Israel, President Shimon Peres said Monday, as he pointed the finger at Iran and Hezbollah for last week's bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israelis.
Peres said Israel had "enough" hard intelligence to link the Bulgaria attack to Iran and its proxy Hezbollah and believes more attacks are being planned as part of what he called an "open war against Israel." Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Iran and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah movement were responsible for a number of attacks and attempted attacks against Israeli targets in Thailand, Georgia, India, Greece, Cyprus and other countries.
"We don't have an initiative of terror," Peres said. "We don't do it. But self-defense is the right and the must of every people." He said Israel's policy was one of "prevention," rather than "retaliation." "If you have enough information about a certain person which is a ticking clock that can explode a bomb that can endanger civilian life, clearly you have to prevent him from doing so," Peres said, citing reports that the United States has killed as many as 3,000 people in drone strikes aimed at terrorist enclaves.

In my humble opinion, I think the phrase "open war" means that it was blatantly an intentional and illegitimate attack against whomever got hurt.
"We don't have an initiative of terror," Peres said. "We don't do it. But self-defense is the right and the must of every people.
The Israeli Government of Ariel Sharon is, like its predecessors, committed to the policy of assassinating individuals who it believes pose a threat to its citizens.

where anyone can jump in and work on it .... bad joke
From what I understand open war is no covert ops and such
and it is known to the "public" now, any operation is known/ movement.
but then again I could be wrong
