Israel may launch strike on Iran N-sites next month
London: Israel may launch a strike on Iran as soon as next month in order to prevent the Islamist regime from developing nuclear weapons.
The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog, has revealed that Iran is developing a nuclear test facility, nuclear detonators and computer modelling for a nuclear warhead that would fit on an existing missile.
According to sources, the understanding at the top of the UK government is that Israel will attempt to strike against the nuclear sites ‘sooner rather than later,’ with logistical support from the US.
A senior Foreign Office figure has revealed that ministers have been told to expect Israeli military action, the Daily Mail reports.
“We’re expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the new year,” the senior official added.
According to the paper, officials believe that US President Barack Obama would have to support the Israelis or risk losing vital Jewish-American support in the next presidential election.
Meanwhile, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague said that the report by IAEA into Iran’s nuclear ambitions ‘completely discredits’ the Islamic nation’s protestations of innocence.
He warned that the UN report could spark a regional arms race.
