Israeli Air Force Commander: We Can Strike Iran's Nuclear Program Tomorrow If Needed

(Jerusalem Post) Israel could successfully strike Iran's nuclear program tomorrow if necessary, incoming commander of the Israel Air Force Maj.-Gen. Tomer Bar told Yediot Aharonot in an interview to be published on Friday. Asked if he thinks Israel can successfully destroy Iran's nuclear facilities, Bar stressed that "there is no way that we will operate there, 1,000 km. from here, and I will return home without being able to say 'I completed the mission.'...We equipped ourselves with F-35s." Concerning the reported U.S. refusal to advance the delivery of two KC-46 tanker refueling aircraft to Israel, Bar said, "I have not yet exhausted the possibility of getting at least two refuelers in advance." Bar said he believes the next war with Hizbullah will break out as soon as Israel strikes Iran. He said the next war with Lebanon will definitely involve a ground operation. "We want a clear victory this time, in a shorter time and with fewer losses."
