Israel preparing War on Iran?

Israel and US preparing for war with Iran?

Israel appears to be preparing for the greatest military exercise in the history of the Jewish state, with Iran being a potential target.

The exercise is expected to take place on June 2 and will involve testing the US-Israeli developed missile defense system ‘Arrow’, intended to deter missile attacks.

An Israeli strike on approximately one dozen targets in Iran could come within hours of receiving orders, according to an Israeli defense official quoted in the Times.

According to the paper’s source the Israeli military is awaiting the final go-ahead by the country’s new government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu.

On Friday, defense sources reported that an Israeli submarine had sailed the Suez Canal to the Red Sea last month, describing the unusual maneuver as a show of strategic reach in the face of Iran.
Israel has long kept its three Dolphin-class submarines, which are widely assumed to carry nuclear missiles, away from Suez so as not to expose them to the gaze of Egyptian harbormasters.

The Egyptian official said Saturday that Cairo did not, nor will it in the future, offer Israel logistic assistance in its efforts to attack Iran …

Each German-made Dolphin has 10 torpedo tubes, four of them widened at Israel’s request – to accommodate, some independent analysts believe, nuclear-tipped cruise missiles. But there have been questions about whether these would have the 1,500-km (1,000-mile) range needed to hit Iran from the Mediterranean.

Israel plans to acquire two more Dolphins early next decade. Naval analysts say this could allow it to set up a rotation whereby some of the submarines patrol distant shores while others secure the Israeli coast or dock to undergo maintenance. …

The Prime Minister’s office issued a statement in response Sunday morning, saying that “the Sunday Times report is fundamentally false and completely baseless.”

According to The Sunday Times, Mossad chief Meir Dagan held secret meetings with Saudi officials, who gave their tacit approval to Israel’s use of the kingdom’s airspace.
