A bad nuclear deal between Iran and world powers "will lead to war," Naftali Bennett, Israeli economy minister and leader of the hawkish Jewish Home party, warned on Monday in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

"There's no one who wants a war less than us," Bennett said. "However, it's one of those cases where a bad deal will lead to a war, and a good deal with actually prevent war."

A good deal, he said, would be one that "dismantles the nuclear weapon production machine."

He warned of a so-called breakout capability, in which Iran would not actually build a nuclear weapon, but rather the ability to produce one, at the flick of a switch, at any given time, within a few weeks -- he said "within six weeks."

If a "bad deal" is brokered with Iran, he said, military action will become inevitable.

He cited the Israeli strikes on nuclear installations in Iraq in 1981 and in Syria -- which the country has never publically admitted -- in 2007.
