Israel: Oh, Yeah. We Can Bomb Iran If We Need To

Addressing a conference at the Fisher Institute for Air & Space Strategic Studies, Vice Premier Moshe Ya’alon, a former IDF chief of staff, stated the same technology used to combat terrorists in Gaza by the Israel Air Force may be extended to strike Iran if need be. He explained that over the years, the IAF’s capabilities have improved, citing the technological, logistical, mid-air fueling capabilities, as well as intelligence and accuracy.

As Iran continues to orchestrate major military exercises, seeking to send a message of defiance and superiority to the international community, particularly the United States and Israel, Ya’alon stated if the decision is made that such an assault in warranted, the IAF can handle the mission.

The former military chief said it plain and simple, “As far as I am concerned, the best defense is offense”, indicating he would not hesitate should the experts feel such a move is warranted as Iran approaches the point of nuclear no-return.
