IDF Chief: Israel, Other Nations Have Prepared Their Armed Forces For Potential Strike Against Iran

Associated Press – “Israel’s military chief said Thursday that other countries have readied their armed forces for a potential strike against Iran’s nuclear sites to keep Tehran from acquiring atomic weapons.

Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz did not specify which nations might be willing to support or take direct action against Iran. Still, his comments were one of the strongest hints yet that Israel may have the backing of other countries to strike the Islamic Republic to prevent it from developing nuclear arms.

‘The military force is ready,’ Gantz said. ‘Not only our forces, but other forces as well.’

‘We all hope that there will be no necessity to use this force, but we are absolutely sure of its existence,’ he told The Associated Press, adding that he was not speaking on behalf of any other nation.

Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, and that it does not aim to develop atomic weapons.” Read more.

    I would be greatly relieved to hear of Israel taking out the Iranian nuclear facilities. If this were to happen, perhaps it would be the catalyst for more prophecy to be fulfilled: (The Mohammedan nations then turn on themselves for a while, knowing that they cannot defeat Israel conventionally).
