5:24 am
telling the truth regarding the independence of the test i must say that is going to be even more impartial and accurate than it was couldn't be more independent because bruce burgess and his son are very renowned experts they were the first ones quite blunt started this business in the u.k. and i think that also really didn't know who they're going to test before they actually met here israel's former security chief has accused the government of misleading the people on the need to strike iran he said the threat of an attack my fourth iran to start working on building a nuclear weapon but as a strike come sooner rather than later how well is israel prepared for iran's response policy or investigates. the move any family lives in the range of gaza for years they complained to the government they had no shelter to protect them from because some rockets fired by hamas but disappointed in the good town wasn't a top priority for tel aviv far from it prompting yakov to eventually build
5:25 am
a shelter himself to protect his family we went through some very tough years we used to worry all the time every time we left the house we were in danger when we went to the store or to work it took a direct hit on your courthouse five years ago before the government finally woke up and bought him a shelter opposite the one he did with people to solve now across israel's closest city to gaza there are bomb shelters in the street and sports fields and your children's playground where they cleverly disguised like this one but that won't reassure the rest of the country in the event of a conflict with the much bigger threat of iran. more global government wants to start a war there for poor parents civilian population for a show of walkers of all kind. from several directions we have got to one point seven million people that haven't got any shelter. we've got
5:26 am
three and a half million people that haven't got a gas mask israelis themselves are skeptic about the country's ability to defend itself many still remember iraqi scud missiles or manned in the center of israel some twenty years ago and a scathing government report issued months ago suggests the home front is woefully unprepared the government. doesn't want to put obviously doesn't want to put the public into panic but i think the public itself probably does not believe in a strike is imminent other words people who've gone crazy the experts say any israeli military strike is very likely to draw any rain in retaliation the target of which is no secret this is the city that iran has threatened to pummel with missiles in response to any israeli attack but many of the public bomb shelters here are dusty and neglected and whereas in previous times of tension tel aviv
5:27 am
distributed gas masks many of those masks remain in storage and i really don't know why they're talking about it so much that's why i think there won't be a war because they are talking about it i don't think there will be a war because i think the government is. wrong in doing nothing to prepare citizens for a decision to ation if someone will bore me i don't know or they need to one. which has many wondering what exactly tel aviv has planned up its sleeve if a government really. intends to start a war they would do things differently or at least prepare their public policy r.t. tel aviv. while a recap of the weeks of stories is on the way stay with us. well
