Israel is preparing military plans and capabilities for an all-out war against Iran, the commander of the army’s Iranian front says. The intensive military buildup was recently approved by the government, Major General Tal Kalman told Maariv daily.

The IDF is preparing for a wide-ranging campaign against Iran that goes beyond a strike on its nuclear sites, the senior officer said. The army will aim to deliver a grave blow to the regime in Tehran by hitting key assets and military resources, he added.

The IDF is also building and constantly improving the capacity to destroy Iran’s nuclear project, Maj. Gen. Kalman said. Israel is speeding up the development of new capabilities and preparing a wide range of battle plans, he noted.

Earlier, IDF Chief Aviv Kochavi said that the IDF has greatly accelerated preparations for an assault on Iran. The army will present the government with a range of strike plans once the government decides to attack, he told Walla News.

Israel is now engaged in an intensive effort to collect intelligence, boost military capabilities, and build a large arsenal of munitions, the army chief said.

Recently, Israel’s Air Force chief visited the US to meet with top defense officials and executives to advance the buildup of the IDF’s air power.
