Israel war with Iran has begun says former Israeli air defence commander

With Iran promising massive retaliation, could Israel count on repeating Saturday’s successful shooting down of nearly all the Iranian missiles and drones – especially when around a third are thought to have been downed by Israel’s Western and Arab allies?

Brigadier General Zvika Haimovich was Commander of the Israel Air Defense Forces until 2018.

We asked him what would happen if any of the coalition partners decided they couldn’t carry on in a burgeoning war between Israel and Iran.
