Editors Notes: Azerbaijan is an established staging ground for the IAF to launch preemptive air strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities. Does it mean the IAF air strikes will be initiated tomorrow, this month or next year, 2013? From my window, Syria is a key strategic path to Iran. The Syrian regime lead by Assad will have to be replaced by a western puppet regime before any IAF preemptive air strike on Iran. If Israel strikes Iran before the fall of Syria, it could ignite a regional war.

Israel’s reported to be planning to use giant, long-range Heron drones to launch stealthy pre-emptive strikes from Azerbaijan, Iran’s pro-Western neighbor, on ballistic missile sites in Iran.
Iran, aware of the danger of Israeli air raids on several fronts, has been wooing oil-rich Azerbaijan to forestall possible strikes from the north, so far to no avail, however, as relations are badly strained.
The Sunday Times of London reported an undetermined number of Herons, which reputedly can carry 5 tons of payload and remain aloft for more than two days, would be used to hit Iranian missile sites with U.S.-built Hellfire missiles before the weapons could be launched.
