Israel has approved a budget of about 5 billion shekels ($ 1.5 billion) that will be used to prepare the military for a potential strike on Iran's nuclear program, Channel 12 reported.

The budget includes funds for various types of aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles for intelligence gathering and unique weapons needed for such an attack, which would target heavily fortified underground targets, according to the Times of Israel.

The message comes just days after the US Air Force announced the successful testing of its new bunker destroyer GBU-72. The 5,000 pound bomb can be used as a tool to strike Iranian nuclear facilities. GBU-72 is designed to be transported by fighter or heavy bomber. Israel does not have bombers capable of carrying the huge bunker destroyers in the current US arsenal.
