Israeli Navy Now Nuclear Capable

Israeli submarines have successfully test-fired long-range cruise missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, Israeli military sources report. Launched from two German-built conventional submarines off Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean last May, the missiles hit targets 930 miles away. The missile-equipped submarines are now believed to be operational.

Israel is the third country capable of firing nuclear-tipped cruise missiles from submarines. The others are the United States and Russia.
