ISRAEL RECEIVES BUNKER-BUSTER WEAPONS
This article belongs to column.
The Israeli Air Force is said to have received 'bunker-buster' bombs from the U.S.
The C17's and a C5 have been seen at Ovda Airbase unloading what can only be described as 'unconventional cargo' with three USAF transport aircraft doing several trips into the base.
Apart from housing a number of F16's, Ovda is also a base for F15i strike aircraft. With in-flight refuelling aircraft in support, the F15 is capable of striking into Iran without too much trouble.
The weapons involved are capable of penetrating and destroying reinforced, below-ground installations and have been used by the U.S. in Afghanistan on a number of occasions.
These weapons have the capacity to either damage or destroy all or some of Iran's nuclear installations.
