“Israel tested a missile on Thursday, prompting Iran to vow retaliation if the Jewish state carried out recent veiled threats to launch strikes, possibly atomic, against Tehran’s nuclear facilities.

Israel is widely assumed to have nuclear warheads and missiles able to hit Iran. It gave no details of the trial. A defense official said it was “not just flexing its muscles”, three days after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert pledged to consider “all options” to prevent Iran building nuclear weapons.” (Reuters)
