(CNN) – As the U.S.-led coalition presses airstrikes against ISIS, a less publicized struggle is going on in nearby Iran.
President Obama has repeatedly said he is determined to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, and both the U.S. and Israel have carried out sabotage attacks against Iranian facilities.
Member of Israel's Knesset and former Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon, author of "Israel: The Will to Prevail," says he wants to see Israel take aggressive military action in the region.
"We are all focusing on ISIS, it is important, but it is a minor issue compared to Iran," Danon said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
Over the weekend "fire broke out in an explosives producing factory in eastern Tehran," Iran's semi-official news agency reported. The factory is suspected to be a secret nuclear facility.
Did Israel's spy agency carry out an attack on the facility?
Check out Danon's answer in the video above.
