Israels Arrow Missile Test A Success - Sharon Warns Of No Tolerance For Iran Going Nuclear

Topics: Iran

arrow_c.jpeg.jpgIsrael's Arrow missile has intercepted and destroyed a target similar to Iran's long-range Shahab-3 missile, in a test launched from an air force base in the centre of Israel. The Arrow stuck and destroyed a missile similar to a Shahab-3, over the Mediterranean.

Israel considers Iran its greatest threat and has been working to counter the Shahab missiles, which Tehran claims has a range capable of reaching Israel and U.S. forces in the Middle East.

This comes as Ariel Sharon has warned that Israel cannot accept Iran becoming a nuclear power and is making preparations to meet such an eventuality.

Earlier this week, the head of Israeli military intelligence, Major-General Aharon Zeevi Farkash, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee he did not believe diplomatic pressures would stop the Iranian effort.

"The efforts of the international community are almost exhausted," he said.

"In this battle, the Iranians have the advantage and the diplomatic track is in danger."

If the Iranian efforts to enrich uranium for a nuclear device were not halted by the end of March, their program would have passed the point of no return,
