Defense Minister Benny Gantz said the Israeli military is constantly updating plans to strike Iran, declaring that “they will never [be] complete” in an interview Thursday with Fox News.

The only time they will be complete will be when Israel carries out the plan, Gantz said.

The US attacked Iranian-backed militia last week in retaliation for rockets shot at US interests in Iraq. Tehran’s proxies in Iraq carried out another attack Wednesday.

“If the world stops them [Iran] before, it’s very much good,” Gantz said. “But if not, we must stand independently and we must defend ourselves by ourselves.”
