Spokesperson of the Israeli Army, Brigadier-General Ran Kochav, said yesterday that the occupation state's army is preparing for all possible scenarios to strike Iran.

"I won't go into policy details, but as we have said in the past, we are preparing for all eventualities," Kochav told Israeli radio Kan Bet.

He added: "We have enhanced our level of readiness, and the military and operational spheres are at the forefront of both preventing Iran from establishing itself in the northern arena and preventing it from becoming a threshold state."

"When I say that we are accelerating our plans against Iran – I mean precisely that."

On Monday, talks on Iran's nuclear programme and associated sanctions began in Vienna, with the participation of representatives from Iran and world powers.

Meanwhile, Israeli Public Security Minister Omer Bar Lev said regarding the talks in Vienna: "It is clear that the military choice is being put on the table."

Likud member Israel Katz criticised Prime Minister Naftali Bennett for not warning US President Joe Biden about Iran during his visit to the White House.
