Israel prepares for Iranian retaliation strikes from Yemen and Iraq


Israel is closely watching Iran's actions that could threaten the existence of the Israeli state. According to the country's authorities, pro-Iranian strikes may come from the territory of Yemen or Iraq. IDF spokesman General Hadi Zilberman announced this in an interview with the Arab news outlet Elaph.


According to the general, Yemen and Iraq can be viewed as a "second circle" of countries after Syria and Lebanon, from which Iran-inspired threats to Israel can come. Zilberman noted that Tehran has a wide range of military capabilities to attack Israeli territory, including unmanned aerial vehicles and remotely controlled missiles.

A senior Israeli soldier believes that Iran is currently playing the role of a "powder keg" in the Middle East, which could detonate at any moment. Particular attention should be paid to the upcoming anniversary of the elimination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, who was killed on January 3, 2020 - the Iranians may strike a "retaliation strike." A kind of revenge by Tehran for the death of Soleimani was the missile attack on the American base in Iraq on January 8, 2020. Therefore, Israel needs to seriously prepare for such actions by pro-Iranian forces from Yemen and Iraq.

Commenting on the recent surfacing of an Israeli submarine in the Persian Gulf, Hadi Zilberman did not officially confirm this information, but emphasized the free operation of the Israel Defense Forces in the Middle East region and the possibility of Israeli submarines cruising in various places of nearby waters.

    General Zilberman did not say anything fundamentally new and did not disclose any secrets. From the very day of the declaration of independence, or rather, even before that day, the Israelis have to be on the alert because the Jewish state in the region has always had an abundance of enemies. Today, many Arab states, formerly ardent opponents of Israel, are reconsidering their line of confrontation, establishing normal relations with Jerusalem. Fundamentalist Shiite Iran, where religious obscurantists are in power, poses a threat to the entire region, primarily to oil-extracting monarchies. And the oil sheikhs decided to be friends with the Jews against the Persians, rightly believing that they themselves would not stand against Iran. Well, the Persians, who are traditionally afraid of Israeli military power, will think several times before starting active actions against their neighbors. I would venture to suggest that there will not be a big war in the near future, the Iranians will not dare to take large-scale military actions even if they are attacked on their nuclear facilities - the ayatollahs also want to live. bully

    Israel prepares for Iranian retaliation strikes from Yemen and Iraq

    To Yemen 2000 km to Iraq 1000 - a strange choice of location for threats.

      The Iranian Fuhrer rightly fears that in Syria and Lebanon the Israelis will get them even before striking them, naive - they hope that this will not happen in Iraq and Yemen. lol

    Israel does not threaten Iran. Open and at the official level, statements about the destruction of the Jewish state are heard from Tehran regularly. In the event of strikes from Yemen or Iraq, a powerful retaliatory strike will follow. Israel, unlike the Ayatollah regime, is not in international isolation or under sanctions. The Israeli army is combat-ready and ready to teach Iran an object lesson. These injections, I believe, are known in Tehran as well. Zilberman's speech, Israeli submarine duty off the Persian coast, successful flights to Iranian facilities in Syria, with the tacit approval of the Russian Federation and the United States, are events of the same order. So Iran is better off not tempt fate. And not disturb the peace of Israel. If he cannot - we will teach, he does not want - we will force him.

    Rather, the Sionyuk is fearless. But real Zionists are very afraid for their lives, because in the event of a war with Iran, they will be methodically destroyed ..

      The destroyer did not grow. Already they tried several times to destroy them all en masse, and even with the all-round help of the "great-mighty", then they washed the worn-out pants for a long time, and the UN cried. And the real Zionists just gave in the muzzles to such destroyers and their patrons. And you can continue dreaming if it makes it easier for you.

    In 2006, Lebanese Hezbollah taught you to respect peace for 14 years! Until now, the Zionist regime does not dare to take military action against Hezbollah .. It is afraid. Well, that's understandable ..

    Grew up and some other, that's why you are so hysterically afraid of Iranian forces nearby .. And this is just a proxy of Iran and not the Persians themselves .. Pray that the Persians themselves do not decide to deal with the utilization of the Zionists and their regime .. I can imagine what galactic highways the clogged trash Zionists about how they again fell under the wild distribution

    You lie .. The main task of the IDF was the disarmament of Hezbollah, the capture of the sheikh and so on, the elimination of all threats .. You did not fulfill it! Hezbollah has become much stronger. The threat has not gone anywhere .. The Sheikh has not yet been caught, he flies freely to the top.

      Yes, the threat has not gone away, and the sheikh is alive. But. Lebanon has lost its infrastructure, which has not yet been rebuilt, and the sheikh comes out of his bunker to get some fresh air once a week, maybe. And for this they are preparing a special operation. Prison vip. Lebanon will not withstand a second such war, and Nasser Allah understands this well, and therefore can only bark from its dungeon, well, and build up its arsenal at the expense of Iranian taxpayers. There is nothing to take from the Lebanese ...

    Don't write nonsense .. Israel acted like Nazi Germany, which destroyed everything it could when it escaped from the occupied territories, blew up bridges, hospitals, stations, water treatment plants and other important facilities .. But did it save them from defeat? No .. Anyway, they were gouged into trash. Israel repeats Germany's mistakes.
