Israeli's military warned on Tuesday that more strikes on Syria could be coming if the nation doesn't stand down its missile attacks.
Israeli military and political heads are holding intense discussions on how best to launch an independent attack on Iran, should the need arise, the nation's defense force chief said Tuesday.
A sense of inevitable war with Iran has seized Israel as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak have concluded 1) Iran is about to produce a nuclear bomb; 2) Iran plans to use it to wipe out Israel; and 3) the time for Israel to bomb Iran's nuclear production sites is now (i.e., at the height of the U.S. presidential campaign, when neither candidate would risk losing by criticizing Israel).
Israel's military chief said in an interview published Wednesday that Iran will ultimately decide against building a nuclear weapon - putting him at odds with Israel's more pessimistic prime minister.
Israel is preparing to absorb Syrian refugees when President Bashar Assad is ousted, the Israeli armed forces chief of staff said Tuesday, adding that he expects the Assad regime to fall in coming weeks.
"We got on the ship with the captain's permission. We found what we found, and you know the rest of the story," he said.
"We have been following this shipment for a long time through impressive intelligence work," Israel's military chief, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, told reporters.
