A preventive strike is a planned attack aiming to deter expected aggression by hostile forces.

Nexter.org made a list of preventive measures different countries used to against their enemies.

officially admitted for the first time that it struck a secret nuclear reactor in Syria 11 years ago.

The strike destroyed the reactor, which was mere months from completion. If completed, the facility would have made Syria the first Arab nuclear state.

Here’s a 2007 photo of an Israeli F-16 fighter jet that took part in the strike:

US preventive strike against North Korea

After the chain of test launches of missiles by North Korea, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) bluntly told CNN’s that Trump will not allow North Korea to even possess a nuclear missile capable of hitting the U.S.

Also it was reported that there are fears in South Korea that the United States will launch “preventive” strikes, reports CNBC, quoting Bruce Klingner, former chief of the CIA Korea division.

Klingner, currently at the Heritage Foundation, said South Korean officials recently told him that “…the U.S. is thinking of hitting two or three targets, and that North Korea would likely respond proportionately.”

“If we have to go to war to stop this we will,” he said. “We’re headed towards a war if things don’t change.”

Likely the preventive strike wasn’t released but still, the problem and tension between two leaders haven’t been solved yet.

Turkey’s preventive measures

Turkey capital city Ankara took preventive measures and has started to conduct 24-hour patrols in the Syrian airspace, as well as instructed the country’s air force to perform flights in parallel with the Russian Aerospace Forces, in order to prevent operational mishaps in Syria.

The measures were taken after the incident with Russian fighter jets, whose airstrikes inadvertently killed three Turkish soldiers and wounded eleven others near al-Bab on February 9.
