US officials say a major military exercise carried out by Israel earlier this month seemed to be a practice for a potential strike against Iran.

More than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighter jets took part in manoeuvres over the eastern Mediterranean and Greece in the beginning of June to gear the military for long-range strikes supposed to aim at Iran's nuclear facilities, the News York Times reported.

Several US officials were quoted by the newspaper as saying they did not believe that Israel had made a final decision to attack Iran and that such a raid was not imminent.

"They rehearse it, rehearse it and rehearse it, so if they actually have to do it, they're ready," a Pentagon official said. "They're not taking any options off the table."
