TEL AVIV, IsraelThe Israel Defense Forces is carrying out drills to practice for a possible massive aerial assault on Iran's nuclear facilities within days - or even hours - of being given the go-ahead by its new government, according to a report today in the Times of London.
"Israel wants to know that if its forces were given the green light they could strike at Iran in a matter of days, even hours. They are making preparations on every level for this eventuality. The message to Iran is that the threat is not just words," one unnamed senior defense official was quoted telling The Times.
The British newspaper quoted other unidentified defense sources explaining any Israeli attack on Iran would entail flying over Jordanian and Iraqi airspace, where U.S. forces have a strong presence.
Previous drills have included the use of F15 and F16 fighter jets, helicopters and refueling tankers, practicing bombing raids at long distances, according to the Times. Those drills took place last year, according to IDF sources speaking to WND.

Go Isreal...preparing to do the hard work of liberty when our own maxist leaders waiver and turn away.
God’s speed IDF and God bless you Bibi.
Kick their butts and God speed.
Obuma’s not gonna like it....
>>Obumas not gonna like it....<<
I’m not that worried about President Obama being upset - I am worried about what happens if Israel can’t do a thorough job. I think it was Dick Cheney who said this was beyond them.
How many times have we heard this the last few years?
The only way it would work is if they use nukes on Iran.
If our MarxistMuslim “President” orders our military to interfere with Israel, I hope our military shirks its duties and disobeys just enough to let the Israeli’s get through.
But... but, if Israel attacks Iran won’t that make Ahmadinnerjacket angry. Then the next thing you know Iran would want to wipe Israel off the face of the earth?
I admire Cheney but he is not GOD.
I wish our leaders were “maxist.”
It’s when they are “marxist” that we have a problem.
Whoops, I forgot, Communist Countries LIKE Obama and HATE Israel!
Get on with it already.
“Get on with it already?”
Was that directed to Israel or USA?
>> I am worried about what happens if Israel cant do a thorough job. I think it was Dick Cheney who said this was beyond them.
Didn’t mean to imply that he was - but VP Cheney may have had a good idea how distributed and hardened the Iranian program was.
If Cheney has a correct account of what Israel has got, it will take a divine miracle to pull off such a raid.
One of the issues (the purported inability of their fighters to refuel in air) seems a bit stretched to me. Is that truly rocket science?
When Netanyahu hits Iran it won’t be this Olmert slap on the wrist crap. God bless Israel! God bless the IDF! Those who bless Israel are then themselves, blessed.
I hope they don’t bomb at 2:00 AM on a Saturday night. They need to inflict casualities, hopefully fatalities. The people are more irreplacable than the facilities. Hit them at 10:00 AM on a Tuesday Morning, to cause as many casualities as possible.
