The IDF continues to prepare for an intense attack on Iran. and must be prepared for every development and every scenario.”

He added: “Preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons through diplomacy is the preferred path, but history has proven many times that diplomacy can fail or succeed for a certain period of time and then be broken or betrayed.”

Kochavi pointed out that preparations for military action against the nuclear program are “at the heart of the preparations” in the Israeli army, which include various war plans that have been allocated many resources, arming with appropriate weapons, in addition to intelligence work and training.
