IAF to start training for strike on Iran nuke program in coming months
Some parts of attack plans for Tehran’s nuclear sites will be viable shortly, others could take over a year, ToI learns; raids on Iranian proxies in Syria getting more difficult

The Israeli Air Force will begin practicing for a strike on Iran’s nuclear program beginning next year, having set aside funding and updated its training schedule for the mission, The Times of Israel has learned. In light of growing uncertainty regarding a return by Iran to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, amid long-stalled negotiations with the United States, the Israel Defense Forces in recent months has ramped up its efforts to prepare a credible military threat against Tehran’s nuclear facilities.

Following the signing of the JCPOA in 2015, Israel put the issue of a military strike on the Iranian nuclear program on the back burner, allowing the IDF to invest its resources into other areas. But following the US abrogation of the nuclear deal in 2018 and Iran’s subsequent violations of the agreement since then — which picked up considerably ahead of and during the stalled talks — the matter has taken on renewed importance to Israel, which sees an Iranian nuclear bomb as a near existential threat.

In the beginning of this year, IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi announced he had instructed the military to begin drawing up fresh attack plans, and last week the government reportedly allocated billions of shekels toward making those plans viable.

Does anyone seriously think Israel hasn't been training for this for some time? Smells like disinformation.
Excellent point. By "In the coming months" they actually mean "for basically the last decade." And, instead of "in the coming months we will strike Iran's Nuclear Sites," they are really saying "Before the end of the week."

Obviously, I am throwing out dates I have no clue about, but I hope my point comes across. Israel is always ready because she HAS to be ready. To do otherwise would risk her very existence. I'd be willing to bet that not only have the Israelies had a detailed operational strike plan on the books for the last few years (one that is constantly updated on a near-daily basis), I also bet that the data drives in their F-16s and F-35s are constantly updated on a daily basis as well (The data drive contains waypoints, targets, threats, etc.)

"Never Again."
