Israeli officials have been repeatedly warning that Israel may end up attacking Iran, yet former National Security Council Chairman Giora Eiland says such strike would not eliminate Tehran’s nuclear program.
Speaking at a conference of the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, Eiland says Israel cannot defeat Iran’s regime via a military operation. “The million dollar question” is the extent of a sufficient suspension period, Eiland said.”To our regret, there is no Israeli military capability that would enable us to reach a situation whereby Iran’s nuclear capabilities are destroyed without the possibility of recovery,” he said. “The maximal achievement that Israel can accomplish is to disrupt and suspend Iran’s nuclear program.”
