— Iran Will Destroy Runways Before Israeli Jets Land

Several current and former senior Israeli military officials and experts have said that the occupying regime lacks the ability to pull off an assault on Iran’s nuclear program, the New York Times reported Saturday.

One current high-ranking security official said it would take at least two years to prepare an attack that could cause significant damage to Iran’s nuclear program, the paper said.
A strike “to destroy the dozens of nuclear sites in distant parts of Iran — the kind of attack Israeli officials have threatened — would be beyond the current resources of the Israeli armed forces,” it added.
