The New York Times quoted officials Friday as saying that more than 100 Israeli F-16s and F-15s staged the maneuver, flying more than 900 miles, roughly the distance from Israel to Iran’s Natanz nuclear enrichment facility, and that the exercise included refueling tankers and helicopters capable of rescuing downed pilots.
The Israelis usually shoot first and reveal later. It is really unusual that they are being so open it their preparations. Historically, they defend their position of the the only nuclear power in the Middle East. While the U.S. blusters and ponders it’s policy towards a nuclear Iran, look for Israel to take a more direct approach.
