A major Israeli TV station reported Sunday that the nation is gearing up for an attack against Iran this summer.

The Channel 10 report, which was first reported in English in the Times of Israel, was a very detailed description of how the attack would unfold.

The reporter, Alon Ben-David, said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor.

While no strike is likely to occur before the P5+1 talks with Iran resume in May, Ben-David, said that the "coming summer will not only be hot but tense.”

"Dozens if not more planes” will take part in the mission: attack and escort jets, tankers for mid-air refueling, electronic warfare planes and rescue helicopters, the report said.

Ben-David said the Israel Air Force “does not have the capacity to destroy the entire Iranian program.” There will be no replication of the decisive strikes on Iraq’s Osirak reactor in 1981 or on Syria in 2007, he said, The Times said. “The result won’t be definitive.” But, a pilot quoted in the report said, the IAF will have to ensure that it emerges with the necessary result, with “a short and professional” assault.

“Years of preparations are likely to come to realization,” he said, adding that “the moment of truth is near.”
