(Worthy News) - The Israeli military is readier now than it ever has been to carry out a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities should it be instructed to do so, a senior security official told Walla news Monday.
"Every year that passes, the IDF improves," the unnamed official said. "We never stand still. The professional level increases. In the coming year we will receive another submarine, F-35 fighter jets and other platforms. Intelligence is improving as well," he said.
He noted that Israel's defensive capabilities against Iranian retaliation were also constantly improving.
But the news site noted that the military option had essentially been suspended in recent years and would not be easily reinstated unless there is a fundamental change in the political landscape, or a serious development in Iran’s alleged progress towards a nuclear bomb. [ Source ]
