Former Israel Air Force chief: Don’t underestimate Israel’s Iran strike capability

( In a thinly veiled message to Iran, former Israel Air Force commander Maj. Gen. (res.) Ido Nechushtan on Saturday warned that Israel’s attack capabilities must not be underestimated.

“I wouldn’t underestimate the capacity of the Israeli Air Force to fulfill the missions it is ordered to carry out. And I think I’ve said enough,” Nechushtan said at an event in Beersheba, according to Israel Hayom.

An attack on the Iran nuclear program should only be carried out “when the alternative is worse,” Nechushtan added.
