Fearing Israeli strike, Iranís military drilled attacks on Haifa, Dimona

Fearing an Israeli strike against Iranís nuclear facilities, the Iranian military drilled attacks on the Israeli port city of Haifa and the nuclear reactor at Dimona, according to a classified Pentagon report.

The American intelligence assessment, reported Wednesday by the New York Times, also reported that skittish Iranian air defense teams mistakenly targeted civilian airliners and military jets in Iranís skies in 2007 and 2008.

In 2008, Israelís air force carried out a large exercise over the Mediterranean that was identified by some observers as a rehearsal for a strike against Iran.

Less than two weeks later, according to the 2008 US report obtained by the Times, the commander of Iranís air force instructed pilots to carry out ďdaily air-to-ground attack training (GAT) at firing ranges resembling the Israeli city of Haifa and the Israeli nuclear facility at Dimona.Ē
