Israel has warned of possible military strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities and believes it would suffer fewer than 500 civilian fatalities if Tehran retaliates.

The warning from Israeli defence minister Ehud Barak came in the wake of a UN report claiming that Iran is closer to building an atom bomb.

Barak insisted that claims of huge destruction in Israel were overblown and that the country could survive the retaliation by Iran.
