Israel will conduct airstrike drills in preparation for the nuclear talks between the West and Iran failing, according to the IDF.
The Israeli airforce will drill striking targets outside the borders of Israel, reported the Jerusalem Post, in its largest ever military drill.
Alongside the air force drills, the army is set to simulate heavy rioting at twice the levels seen last year during the 11-day war.
The drill is dubbed ‘Chariots of Fire’, with thousands of Israeli troops taking place in anticipation of a breakdown of negotiations with the West and Iran.
Fears of an Iranian nuclear bomb are back on the horizon as the hard line Islamist theocracy works on advanced uranium centrifuges at a new underground site, Israel has warned.
Benny Gantz, the Israeli defence minister, said that Iranian efforts to purify uranium at sites under construction near its Natanz nuclear plant exceeded UN figures from a March report.
‘Iran is making an effort to complete the manufacturing and installation of 1,000 additional advanced IR6 centrifuges in its nuclear facilities, including new facilities being built at underground sites abutting Natanz,’ Gantz said in a speech at Reichman University near Tel Aviv.
‘Iran continues to accumulate irreversible knowledge and experience in the development, research, production, and operation of advanced centrifuges.
‘It stands just a few weeks away from obtaining fissile material needed for a first bomb.’
Centrifuges are used to purify uranium for civilian projects or, at higher levels, to make fuel for a nuclear bomb.
