Israel is sending a strong message to Iran, US and the world as it readies itself to undertake military drills to strike Iran’s nuclear sites if it gets green signal in future from its government. Israeli military will prepare itself to launch massive aerial attack to bomb nuclear sites in Iran. The drill also includes civil defense drill to prepare civilians for the retaliatory attack from Iran too.
No doubt Israel is making it clear to Iran that in case of any eventuality they can bomb more than dozen nuclear sites and moving convoys in a matter of few days or hours. The on-the-ground preparations, training exercises involving F15 and F16 jets, tankers and helicopters indicate that threat can translate into action.
Israel will need consent from US to carry out such a big operation. Without US intelligence input it would be impossible to get all information about exact locations of nuclear facilities. But by carrying out this drill Israel is showing a kind of preparedness to take on Iran alone. The fate of Middle East crisis now depends on new Israeli government, Obama and Iran.
