Israel would retaliate if there was an Iranian attack on Tel Aviv by striking Tehran, Israel's defence minister said in remarks published on Thursday, as the arch-foes faced off over Syria.

"Israel doesn't want war ... but if Iran attacks Tel Aviv, we will hit Tehran," Avigdor Lieberman told the Arabic-language, Saudi-owned news website Elaph, which is based in London.
