(JNS.org) Former IDF intelligence chief Amos Yadlin said Sunday that President Trump should "make a preemptive strike" to inhibit North Korea's ability to further develop its nuclear weapons capability. According to him, the strike on the al-Talai Scientific Studies and Research Center may have been a outcome of Nasrallah's visit to Damascus last week.
Although Israel reportedly launched the airstrikes, the report concludes it is possible the USA targeted the facility as a "backdoor means" at getting at North Korea.
While he refused to confirm that Israel carried out the airstrikes, he said that if it did, it would show "Israel intends to enforce its readiness despite the fact that the great powers are ignoring them".
While the strike was in the framework of Israel's policy of preventing arms transfers to Hezbollah but "it's another level of interference", he added.
Israel has long warned it would not allow the transfer of sophisticated weaponry to Hezbollah and has accused Iran of building sites to produce "precision-guided missiles" in both Syria and Lebanon.
