JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel is vowing to retaliate against Iran even though such a mission carries many risks. Any direct attack on Iranian soil would risk prompting an all-out war between the two foes at a time when Israel is focused on defeating Hamas in Gaza. It would also risk isolating Israel internationally. Analysts tell the Associated Press that Israel is enjoying a moment of international support after putting down Iran’s attack over the weekend in tandem with a coalition of international allies. But they say if Israel decides to strike Iranian soil, it could jeopardize that goodwill and increase Israel’s isolation.
