(Worthy News)-- The use of Israeli military force against Iran's nuclear facilities would be an act of "last resort," Israel's air force commander said Thursday, but part of his role is to ensure that the air force has "the genuine capacity to get the job done" if ordered to do so, the Times of Israel reported.
Major-General Amir Eshel, in his first television interview in the three years since he took command of the Israeli Air Force, told Israel's Channel 10 news Thursday that an Iran with a nuclear capability "would have grave significance for the whole Middle East, not just for Israel."
The TV report, which was cleared for broadcast by Israel's military censors, said that Israel has invested "immense resources" in preparing for a possible strike on Iran. "The Israeli Air Force has been building the capacity to attack Iran for more than a decade," it said. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/israels-air-force-chief-can-get-job-done-if-order-comes-to-strike-iran/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
