Missile Raid Would Hit Iran Nuclear Plans: Olmert

BERLIN (Reuters) – Iran’s disputed nuclear programme could be severely hit by firing 1,000 cruise missiles in a 10-day attack, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was quoted as saying on Saturday.

Asked in an interview with Germany’s Focus magazine whether military action would be an option if Iran continued to defy the United Nations, Olmert said: “Nobody is ruling it out.”

“It is impossible perhaps to destroy the entire nuclear programme but it would be possible to damage it in such a way that it would be set back years,” Olmert said.

“It would take 10 days and would involve the firing of 1,000 Tomahawk cruise missiles.”
