Israeli Air Force Ready To Attack Iran

Israeli Air Force says it is ready to strike Iran's nuclear facilities. Israeli Air Force Commander General Ido Nehushtan claims his forces are ready to follow any order to thwart Iran's nuclear programs.

"The IAF is a very robust and flexible force … ready to do whatever is demanded," Nehushtan told German magazine Der Spiegel on Tuesday.

He added, however, a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities "is a political decision" and has nothing to do with Israel's military capabilities.

The Nehushtan interview coincides with recent remarks by former Israeli military general, Moshe Ya'alon, who said that Israeli armed forces have the 'right capabilities' to launch a successful strike against Iran.

Ya'alon also revealed the wider ambitions of the Israeli regime aimed at toppling the Iranian government.

"[A strike] is not the end of the game. Then, we should follow it up with a viable, sustainable military operation to target the facilities [serving] the regime's interests, and not allow the regime to rehabilitate itself."

The threats against Iran's nuclear program conflict with the latest report by the UN nuclear watchdog, the IAEA, which revealed that its inspectors have not found any 'components of a nuclear weapon' or 'related nuclear physics studies' in the country.
