Israel Prepared for Any Scenario

The threat of an attack by Iran on Israel looms overhead. It’s a potential scenario we hoped would never come; and still, it may not happen.

During a visit to the Tel Nof Airbase in central Israel where he met with members of the 133rd Squadron, which operates F-15 fighter jets, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today that Israel is prepared “both defensively and offensively” for any attack. These assurances to the troops came as Iran threatens retaliation for the assassination of a very high-ranking Revolutionary Guard in Damascus early this month.

“We’ve established a simple principle,” Netanyahu added. “Whoever harms us, we will harm them. We are ready to respond to Israel’s security needs, both defensively and offensively. The people of Israel and I trust you and may we all have great success.”

Iran should know that if it launches a missile at Israel, it could boomerang back. Israel has the capability to launch an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. If Iran does attack Israel, would it be testing to see if Israel responds by targeting their nuclear arsenal? We know Israel will not fire first but if it has no choice to defend itself it will – offensively and defensively. Iran on the attack represents an immediate threat to not only Israel but the entire western world. Finally, we question whether Israel would respond by initially attacking Iran’s nuclear facility. We are not privy to the IDF’s plan for this scenario. We only pray it doesn’t reach that point.
