This should aid the IDF in allocating targets for op 'destroy the nukes'

JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israel will put a new spy satellite into service which will increase the levels of surveillance of Iran's nuclear programme, organisers of the launch said.

The Eros B satellite was to go into orbit in an evening launch in eastern Russia, carried on the back of a Russian ballistic missile that has been refitted to serve as a launcher.

The satellite is being launched by ImageSat, a company that is part-owned by state-owned Israel Aircraft Industries.

ImageSat said in a statement to AFP that the 280 kilogramme (616 pound) satellite, which is able to spot objects of no more than 70 centimeters (28 inches) long, would be fired into space from a site in Siberia.

Nothing special. Previously Iranians launched their satelite the same way.

The point is that this one is specifically tasked to keep an eye on the Iranian Nuclear programme, oh yeah and it is a bit of a tense time in middle east relations :D
