Report: Israeli Strike Against Iran Likely In Coming Weeks


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.

  1. I wonder – Isn’t it more likely that these apparent deliberate security leaks are designed to put pressure on the international community to take a more meaningful and direct stance vis a vis Iran? It just seems implausible that news or hints of an actual planned military operation would be leaked this way, unless it was impossible to hide…which I doubt this is. We’ll find out soon enough, I suppose.

  2. Not to be too picky…but recent YWN stories about impending Israeli air strikes have been accompanied by a photo of a Russian MiG-29. Can’t you find a photo of an Israeli F-15E Strike Fighter…which I presume is what they’d use in an Iranian operation?

  3. I can’t believe that they’re announcing this. It seems pretty stupid to tell Iran that Israel is going to bomb their nuclear stuff within the next two months. Is this supposed to be for real?

  4. seems US & Britian are leaving the dirty work for Israel. they should take care of Iran themselves. Israel is the only country that doesnt have to worry about nucluer warfare since it’s impossible for them to be destroyed.
