Former Supreme Court judge Eliyahu Winograd, who headed an inquiry into Israel's war on Lebanon in 2006, voiced objection to an Israeli strike on Iran, saying it would "risk Israel's future".
Winograd leveled harsh criticism at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak's assessment of Israeli casualties in the event of war with Iran, saying, "No more than 500 killed? How do you know? Did you already count?
"I'm not familiar with their considerations, but their (statements) are extremely irresponsible," Winograd said in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday.
The former Supreme Court justice added, "The chiefs of the entire defense establishment - Shin Bet and Mossad chiefs past and present, Military Intelligence - they all oppose a strike but Netanyahu and Barak alone will decide?
He warned Iran will not hesitate to unleash its full missile arsenal on Israel in case it comes under attack. "Not only will it fire, it may enlist the help of Hezbollah and Hamas... We can look forward to missiles raining from all directions.
