Israel to buy warship that can launch multiple nuclear warheads

This sounds like a formidable ship, however it would be easy to track in the busy Mediterranean.

Israel is endlessly seeking to acquire modern weaponry, especially after it was dealt a sever blow in its war on Lebanon in 2006, when its warship, Hanit, was hit and after Iran announced it has produced a military submarine.

In this context, the Israeli television revealed that the navy intends to buy a US warship capable of launching multiple nuclear missiles against “enemy cities.” According to the television report, the vessel also has the ability to protect Israeli cities against rocket attacks and be a strategic arm.

"This ship is different from all other known Israeli vessels. It is equipped with defense systems against rockets, submarines, and planes. It also has a Special Forces operations base and another for helicopters and drones," the director of NGS ship project Dan Schultz said.

Meanwhile, the Israeli television also uncovered that the Israeli Air Force has moved its airbase near the Ben-Gurion airport – after operating for forty years - to another base; the biggest in the Negev desert. The television also said that Hercules planes, capable of flying long distances, have been recalled to the base due to the fact that Israel expects its aerial bases to be targeted at the outset of the next war.

"We are moving forward to become an effective and essential component with great air-force capabilities in Negev," the air-force base commander, Daniel Shlayfer, said.

He also said that Defense Minister Ehud Barak laid the cornerstone for a large city in Negev that would contain around twenty thousand soldiers as well as intelligence centers. According to the Israeli television, the move is part of a large scale army plan, known as the Negev development plan.
