According to a report in the British Daily Mail, Israel is likely to launch a military attack against Iran within two months in an effort to destroy or cripple Iran’s nuclear facilities. The report states that such an attack will take place with American logistical support.
According to the Daily Mail, high-level British government officials were informed of an imminent attack by Israel, and these officials have released statements including “We’re expecting something as early as Christmas or very early in the new year”.
Addressing a Haifa audience on Wednesday, November 9, 2011, British Ambassador to Israel Mathew Gould stated it is evident from Israel’s point of view that non military options have all but been exhausted.
The ambassador’s remarks came on the heels of statements released by Russian President Dimitry Medvedev, who reject US calls for stiffer sanctions against Iran in an effort to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear independence.
