Israel under international pressure not to attack Iran alone

Israel is facing growing international pressure not to attack Iran unilaterally, with the US in particular making clear its firm opposition to any such strike. It follows pressure on world leaders to halt Iran's contested nuclear programme.

The US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey made comments that Washington did not want to be blamed for any Israeli initiative, according to an interview with the Guardian.

– Martin Dempsey, US chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General
