A 3-day war on multiple fronts will begin if Israel decides to strike Iran, according to Israel's outgoing Defense Minister, Matan Vilnai.
Vilbai has declared that his country is "ready as never before" for such a clash, stating that "there is no room for hysteria."
"The assessments are for a war that will last 30 days on a number of fronts," the Minister has declared in an interview for Maariv, as cited by international media.
He reiterated that the Jewish state would suffer around 500 deaths in the war.
"It could be that there will be less fatalities, but it could be there will be more, that is the scenario that we are preparing for according to the best experts."

Actually, Saudi Arabia and UAE are ordering their citizens out of Lebanon only, and this seems to be due to recent kidnappings in the area. I don't see a connection to Israel yet.

Too soon to know for sure at the moment.
It's 5 minutes before midnight, and it seems like the Israeli government will this time start a war and go through with creating the single most dangerous military confrontation that we've had in a long time.

I think people over estimate the amount of influence that the United States has over the government of Israel.
