Report: Israel Army Rehearsed for Iran strike over Gibraltar


"03/05/2009 While the United States is talking about a dialogue with Iran , Israel may be preparing for the second option: Israel Air Forces planes recently staged maneuvers between Israel and the British colony of Gibraltar near southern Spain, French weekly L'Express reported over the weekend. According to the report, the exercise was carried out some 3,800 kilometers away from occupied Palestine and proves that the Israel occupation army plans to strike nuclear and sensitive sites in Iran.

Meanwhile, he Jerusalem Post has learned that Air Force reservists who operate the Arrow and Patriot missile defense systems have recently begun spending one day a week on duty to sharpen their skills, amid fears that in a conflict with Iran, dozens of long-range missiles would be fired at Israel.

"We are working hard to be ready for the Iranian threat," a top IAF officer said. "We are preparing for barrages, split warheads and other surprises and therefore we need to retain a high operational level by everyone, including reservists."

The scenarios that are drilled include the firing of large barrages at Israel from different countries at once, and the need for the operator to decide which missile to intercept first and at what stage of its flight........"
