US National Security Adviser Tom Donilon has informed Israel of Washington’s ‘contingency plans’ for a possible attack on Iran, should the negotiations between Tehran and the P5+1 fail, an Israeli paper says. The Israeli daily Haaretz reported on Sunday that US President Barack Obama’s national security adviser briefed Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the plan during his visit to Tel Aviv two weeks ago. Citing a senior American official who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the report said Donilon has assured the Israeli premier that the US “is seriously preparing for the possibility that negotiations will reach a dead end and military action will become necessary.”
Press TV has conducted an interview with Mohammad Marandi, professor at the University of Tehran, to further discuss the issue.
