After 2 years, Israel said to resume training for strike on Iran nuclear sites

Israel’s Air Force has resumed training for a potential military strike on Iranian nuclear sites after a two-year lull, Channel 12 news reports.

The report says IDF chief Aviv Kohavi has ordered funding for the move, which comes against the backdrop of US efforts to bring Tehran back to the negotiating table for a renewed nuclear deal.

Jerusalem, and perhaps Washington as well, are said to understand that a military back-up plan must be available in case diplomacy fails, and that it would be hard to convince Iran to negotiate without a viable military option.
