A former Israeli Mossad intelligence chief has said on Wednesday that striking Iranian nuclear facilities in a retaliatory strike “is on the table.”

The former director of Israeli intelligence spy agency Zohar Palti that be in “no doubt” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could “attack sensitive facilities” in Iran after Ministers have urged for this to take place.

The timing of the attack either on Iran or their proxies is “still ongoing” and Netanyahu has been urged to strike “as soon as possible” in retaliation to last Saturday’s missiles and drone attacks.

Palto was asked by The World with Yalda Hakim if everything is on the table, including striking Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Palto said, “No doubt. Everything is on the table right now,” asked if this includes nuclear facilities he replied, “Including everything.”

Michael Shemesh, political correspondent at the Israel Broadcasting Corporation, said on Telegram, “Government ministers recommended that Netanyahu attack sensitive facilities in Iran in response to the Iranian attack on Israel.

“The dispute in the Israeli leadership over the timing of the response is still ongoing. Most decision-makers believe the action should be carried out as soon as possible.”

He added, “A senior government official said tonight: ‘Every day that passes, the chances of a significant retaliatory attack on Iran are decreasing.’”

Israel is considering their military “options” which could see airstrikes on Iran or their proxies.

The Middle East is on the brink and the region could be dragged into a wider conflict and many different “scenarios” are being considered.

IDF spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari tells reporters at Julis military base, “We cannot stand still from this kind of aggression, Iran will not get [off] scot-free with this aggression.”

A security expert warned Israel “will” use a new Electro Magnetic Pulse bomb (EMP) against Iran.

Israel’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu could end up using the E-bomb as a last resort which will be a “very unconventional response.”

A military defence expert who did not want to be named told the Daily Star, “If Iran does decide to attack Israel directly by attacking strategic sites in Israel, there is going to be a very unconventional response from Israel.

“For the first time ever in history, a new type of bomb will be used. It’s called the Electromagnetic bomb (E-bomb).

“It will be used against Teheran and other major centres in Iran. It will also be used in the areas where the Iranian nuclear facilities are found.”
