Israeli Air Force Rehearses Long-Range Refueling And Bombing Missions
AFP - Israeli warplanes this week practiced long-range missions including mid-air refueling in what local media said was a signal to arch-foe Iran.
The Israeli air force on Thursday posted pictures and video of the exercise on its website, without saying where or when it took place.
But the accompanying text gave what the online version of Haaretz daily called “the heaviest of hints about the goal of the exercise…a possible attack on Iran.”
Haaretz said the drill took place with the Greek air force.
Israel says that until Iran veritably halts what the Jewish State and its US ally say is a covert nuclear arms programme, all options remain on the table, including a military strike.
“When one speaks of ‘all options on the table’ it can be understood that one is speaking about the military option,” the air force web site said Thursday.
“The air force, the long arm of the Israel Defence Forces, is responsible for carrying out that option.”
It quoted an officer who took part in the exercise as saying there were special challenges in planning and executing flights “far from home” citing “weather conditions and unfamiliar ground along with possible threats along the way.” source – France 24

A new report that says Iran may need as little as a month to produce enough uranium for a nuclear bomb is further evidence for why Israel will take military action before that happens, an Israeli defense official said Friday. “We have made it crystal clear – in all possible forums, that Israel will not…

Talks in Geneva on Iran’s nuclear program are triggering fears within U.S. intelligence agencies that Israel is hardening its stance on Iran and could conduct a military attack to stave off what the Jewish state believes is a delaying tactic for Tehran to buy time to build nuclear weapons.
