Israel Air Force Chief Amikam Norkin says Israel is the ‘insurance policy’ against Iran obtaining a nuclear bomb.

In a rare interview on Channel 13 News, that will be aired in full tomorrow, Norkin is evasive when asked about the Air Force’s capabilities and Iran’s immediate threat.

“We’re the insurance policy; we make mistakes; we’re improving,” says Norkin. Asked if that insurance policy has to be exercised, he adds: “We’ll do whatever is required.”

Norkin does not provide an answer when asked if Israel’s Air Force can fully neutralize the threat of a nuclear Iran.
