The Israeli military has presented Israeli leadership with several possible scenarios for striking targets in Iran, Haaretz reported on Tuesday.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) has received a budget boost of $2.9 billion to prepare for attacks on Iran. As part of its preparations, the IDF has conducted air force drills, acquired advanced weaponry, and collected data for new strike targets.
Israeli military officials told Haaretz that the IDF would be able to strike Iran as soon as the government gave the order. But the IDF stresses that it is difficult to determine the outcome and consequences of bombing Iran and how such strikes would impact Tehran’s civilian nuclear program.
The report comes amid renewed negotiations in Vienna to revive the Iran nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA. Since the talks resumed, Israeli officials have been threatening to attack Iran and are warning Israel could act alone, without support from the US.
But most of Iran’s nuclear facilities that Israel wants to strike were built deep underground, and Israel lacks bombs with bunker-busting capabilities that would be needed to hit the Iranian nuclear sites. Israel also lacks bombers that could carry such munitions.
Israel is seeking a tanker plane from the US that would make it easier for Israeli warplanes to travel to and from Iran. But Washington has reportedly told Israel the aircraft won’t be delivered until at least 2024.

Will someone please stop Israel from starting another world war?
Sometimes countries have to learn the hard way that war isn’t good for anything
I think the impending rape of Iran depends on the 1/10 consult with Putin. He has to commit to tell Tehran that in the event he will stand and watch, not rescue or succor them in any way. And in this knowledge at the eleventh hour in the Geneva Iran has to agree to emasculate itself along with its Shia and Palestinian confreres; and submit to Zionist hegemony
Yep, I wonder what kind of dope they’re using.
The official press releases are exact inversions on all sides.
We’ve seen this before, of course. Kissinger got Russia & China to agree to desert Hanoi in its hour of need. They agreed, but Ho wouldn’t surrender and Moscow and Beijing continued to support him. Famously it ended in humiliating defeat for The Empire. Sullivan thinks it will work this time. And maybe he’s right. We will know very soon.
A terribly bleak outlook…
I have no desire to see a larger conflict but I believe that these people have a right to defend themselves, especially if an onslaught were to be driven by Israel…
Yes, but, only think of the disparity in force. They haven’t the means to exercise that right; and are thereby the especial designated enemies (“terrorists”) of the Zionist Empire.
Fair enough Robert. Certainly not a designation that anyone should wish for but then again, when you are up against that empire, we all seem to be fair game…
You make your point articulately, but it still leaves the question, what should they do, in terms of course of action?…
I’m in awe of what they are doing, …but am afraid only the gods can prevent what this pack of jackals intends.
If you have any names for these ‘gods’, let me know and I’ll start putting out burnt offerings. Poor joke.
Ah, just the kind of optimism I was hoping for…
Pack of jackals, well said…
Then what other recourse is there? …
right, and war is peace, freedom is slavery…..
Iran will when it launches its massive missile arsenal at the “Jewish State”…
Israel appears to have a death wish…
Let’s see, there’s a list of apartment buildings in Tehran, schools, airports, sea ports, city blocks, refineries, … just say that Iran is using human shields, all will be forgiven.
Translation: “… the IDF stresses that it is difficult to determine the outcome and consequences of…” losing a war against Iran directly or by quagmire of an eternal North Korean-styled state of war with Iran.
Neutral pretense would leave Israel freer to continue silent trade with Iran; they really would prefer someone else fight this war on their behalf.
“Israel-Iran trade ties thriving: Under American radar, dozens of Israeli companies secretly engage in relations with Islamic Republic through third parties” – Ofer Petersburg, YnetNews, May 31, 2011.
Why does israel pathologically need to bomb its neighbors on a weekly basis? Not a very good neighbor if you ask me. They whine about how everybody hates them and wants to attack them and yet, it seems obvious that the truth is quite literally the opposite…
Israel has already struck targets in Iran, and, they have murdered Iranian scientists.
And Iran has responded with their own attacks.
How many Americans will die as a result of Israel’s bombing? The number is very likely greater than the number of Israelis who will die.
Another words, We are digging Our Own Graves…!
If Zionist Israel attacks Iran Tel Aviv will be destroyed – Iranian’s won’t be massacred by the Zionists like the many thousands of Palestinian Men, Women, and Children who were beaten, shot, and murdered during the 1948 Nakba all the way up to today – recently released reports of Israeli Zionists slaughtering Palestinian’s even bashing in babies and children heads have confirmed the atrocities that were already known but these reports confirm them
Yes,and Germany claimed they were invaded by Poland, and white bread elite magazines named Hitler the man of the year.
Amateurish psy-ops designed to accompany the negotiations? Israel never warns before actually attacking.
You’re probably correct. And since Israel still hasn’t figured out how to deal with Hezbollah in Lebanon, they can’t afford a war until they do. And that’s going to require US help.
Political Coordination Between Egypt and Russia Intensifies.
Thank you, very interesting, …tho I don’t know what to make of it, el-Sisi defying US sanctions??
Egyptians have suddenly developed an aversion to Americans and Bolsheviks?
I hope Moscow heeds this story in the appropriate manner.
Moscow wins by testing and selling weapons.
The more wrenches that can be thrown into the mix, the better. Let Israel try and make its own way to Iran, if they dare (and they probably will).
They could also start paying US back a lot of the monies we have given them over the years………………………………………………………………………………………..
