Outgoing IAF commander Maj. Gen. Ido Nechushtan suggested on Friday that it would be better to keep quiet on the subject of Iran and a possible Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities.
In a special interview with Channel 2 News, Nechushtan, who is retiring from the IDF after 37 years of service, said, We are not commentators of this situation, we are not closely following the events. We are on the side of the solutions. We come from the side of the tools that are at the countrys disposal.
He added, I think that some of the public discourse being made is out of place. Its not helpful, its even harmful and in any case is not made on the basis of sufficient information or data. I think it is best to keep silent on this.
Were unable to talk about many things weve done and maybe thats a good thing, said Nechushtan, perhaps hinting at some covert operations Israel has carried out. The Air Force will continue to protect Israel.
Nechushtan said that The Air Force understands the relevant tasks on the agenda, and its job is even to find them early. It sits and builds programs and builds strength. It is trained and prepared for any scenarios and with this Ive said a lot.

This MajorGeneral sounds like a steady man,
the kind whose resolution puts fear into the
hearts of his enemies.
Now retired, though.
