Launching a comprehensive strike on Iran's scattered nuclear facilities would be a challenge, but Israel is perfectly capable of destroying the Islamic Republic's nuclear program should international diplomacy and sanctions fail.
That according to an unnamed Israeli general who gave a briefing to a small number of journalists in Canada last month.
The Canadian Jewish News quoted the general as saying that even if Israel failed to completely destroy every major nuclear installation, its aerial assault would set the Iranian nuclear program back years and even decades.
An increasing number of experts are warning that without military intervention by either Israel or the US, Iran will eventually obtain nuclear weapons.
