Reader comment on: The Attack on Syria's al-Kibar Nuclear Facility
Submitted by Harry D. Frick III (United States), Oct 2, 2013 11:19
Does Israel have the capability to destroy Iran's most important nuclear facilities? I've read that Israel does not have the so-called "bunker buster" missile technology, and therefore could not destroy Iran's most valuable, underground, facilities. Am I correct?
Thank you. Harry D. Frick III Culver Academies, Culver, IN 46511

Jewish Policy Center replies:
Israel has its own "bunker buster" bomb variety; it does not have U.S. bombs of that sort. The real question is whether Israel - or anyone - can account for the redundancies built into the Iranian system. It isn't like Osirak in Iraq - a single facility above ground. "Separate, bury and harden" was the mantra; and then "duplicate facilities."
