Israel
Israel has not formally declared its nuclear capabilities, but it is believed to have several possible nuclear -delivery systems in its arsenal. During the Gulf War, Israel made oblique references to nuclear attack as a possible response to Saddam Hussein's threats to use chemical weapons against it. American spy satellites are known to have taken photographs of Israel at full nuclear alert, with deployed nuclear launchers facing Iraq. Though experts cannot be certain, Israel is believed to have a large nuclear-weapons infrastructure in place.
