How Nuclear War Almost Broke Out in 1973

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

Arnan "Sini" Azaryahu was a long-time political insider within the Israeli government, where he served as a trusted aide and confidant to Minister Yisrael Galili, a close ally and advisor to Israeli prime minister Gold Meir.

In this full-length interview, Sini recounts a tense meeting held in Meir's office during the height of the 1973 Yom Kippur war, when Meir overruled a request from Defense Minister Moshe Dayan to prepare Israel's nuclear arsenal for a demonstration blast.
