At the German Ramstein airbase, an early warning system for a ballistic missile strike was triggered.

All services and personnel of the German Air Force base were put on full alert after the early warning system of a missile strike was triggered.

According to, air defense and missile defense units were raised on alarm at the base where the nuclear weapons are located.

Experts believe that the alarm was false - it happened due to the automatic triggering. Meanwhile, the Pentagon said it was about training.

“Experts do not exclude that the training could really take place, however, it is noteworthy that it unexpectedly coincided with the launch of the Russian nuclear submarine Vladimir Monomakh of four ICBMs at once, which took place a few days ago”, - the newspaper notes.

In recent months, specialists have been particularly concerned about the development of Iran's nuclear program, which has accumulated significant reserves of nuclear fuel. The deployment of ballistic missile systems in Iran became known on November 27. It was reported that the alleged target of the strike could be the territory of Israel. Satellite tracking devices have recorded suspicious military activity in Iran. According to the portal , several dozen missile systems equipped with medium and long-range ballistic missiles were moved into firing positions. The actions of the military completely repeat the situation with Tehran's strikes against US military bases in Iraq.

According to the observers, the target of an attack by the Iranian military forces may become Israel: some high-ranking officials of the Islamic Republic said that Tel Aviv may be involved in the organization of the terrorist attack that took place on the eve of which killed Iran's leading nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. After that, the adviser to the supreme leader of the country publicly promised to "strike with lightning on the murderers of the martyr". In early December, Fahmi Hinawi, one of the leaders of the Israeli intelligence service of the MOSSAD, who oversaw the operation to eliminate the Iranian nuclear physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was killed. Hinawi was shot dead on the evening of December 3 in his own car near Tel Aviv. He was killed according to the same scenario, which is often used by the Israeli special services in eliminating unwanted persons. Hinawi's car stopped at a traffic light, at which moment he was fired upon from firearms.
