Israel has reportedly indicated that if Iran launches a strike in retaliation for Israel killing a top Iranian general last week, Israel will respond by destroying Iran’s nuclear sites.

The Times of Israel highlighted a report from a London-based Arab news organization this week that cited a “Western security official” who said that Israel has been conducting air force drills in recent days “that include preparing to target Iranian nuclear facilities and other key infrastructure.”

Israel eliminated Mohammed Reza Zahedi, the top commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’s Quds Force in Lebanon and Syria, from the battlefield last week as he met with other Iranian commanders and leaders from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group.

The Coalition Council of Islamic Revolution Forces, a staunchly pro-IRGC political group, responded to the strike by praising Zahedi’s “strategic role in forming and strengthening the resistance front as well as in planning and executing” Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack against Israel.

U.S. officials believe that Iran is unlikely to launch a direct attack themselves, as sources familiar with U.S. intelligence told CNN that Iran has “urged several of its proxy militia groups to simultaneously launch a large-scale attack against Israel, using drones and missiles, and that they could attack as soon as this week.”


U.S. intelligence said that there was debate over whether the terrorist groups would wait until after Ramadan ends this week before launching the attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned last week that the country will not hesitate to take preemptive military action against any threat it faces.

“Iran has been acting against us for years — directly and via proxies. And, therefore, Israel acts against Iran and its proxies — defensively and offensively,” he said. “We will know how to defend ourselves, and we will act according to the simple principle: that those who harm us or plan to harm us, we will harm.”
