Israel prepares…

There have been signs of increased CBRN defence capability towards a, currently, nebulous (but no doubt intelligence driven) threat, but a Summit in Herzloya has perhaps given a further insight into their concerns. Brig.-Gen. (Res.) Nitzan Nuriel, director of the National Security Council's Counter-Terrorism Bureau stated that Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center will be “demolished” if it continues to arm terrorist groups with non-conventional weapons. The Director of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism later went on to say that there was a “strong possibility that terrorists would launch a limited chemical terror attack” in the coming years. Israeli scare-mongering and sabre rattling is nothing new, but suffice to say that any terrorist use of CWA against them would be a game changer – and that new game would not be pretty.
