Israel forbereder angrep på Iran

Israel, the United States and some European nations suspect that Iran’s nuclear program is aimed at weapons development, a charge that Tehran has denied.

«Israel wants to know that if its forces were given the green light, they could strike at Iran in a matter of days, even hours,» a high-level defense official said. «They are making preparations on every level for this eventuality. The message to Iran is that the threat is not just words.»

“We would not make the threat (against Iran) without the force to back it. There has been a recent move, a number of on-the-ground preparations, that indicate Israel’s willingness to act,” one Israeli intelligence official said. These moves include the purchase of three Airborne Warning and Control aircraft and performing of attack scenarios.

The primary threat facing Israel is the possible rise of «a radical regime armed with nuclear weapons,» new Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently said in a likely allusion to Iran.
