Now the truth comes out.
A report out of Kuwait claims that President Obama thwarted an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 after he threatened to shoot down Israeli jets.
The Israeli leadership had reportedly decided to strike Iran after they learned that the United States and Tehran had been negotiating in secret about that country's nuclear program. After four days of intense deliberation, Israel decided to attack.
But a "unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration" told the White House of Israel's plans. Obama then made the threat, forcing Israel to back down.
According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.”
The sources added that Gantz and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out experimental flights in Iran's airspace after they managed to break through radars.
The report appeared in the Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida and was picked up by Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency and published in English by Arutz Sheva.
