As the tension between Iran and the United States continue to increase, Israel is also preparing for a proxy attack on all fronts.
While the rhetoric between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States continues down a path of hostility, the Jewish State is also preparing for any possibility of an Iranian attack on Israeli soil. Both Israel and the US have been keeping close tabs on the Iranians with the anniversary of the death of General Qassem Soleimani taking place on Sunday.
Though the Iranian regime’s primary feud is currently with the US, it certainly has not taken its eyes off of Israel for the time being, especially in light of the fact that Iran’s lead nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was killed at the hands of the Israelis just weeks ago. The regime has also been targeting Israel with cyberattacks in recent weeks, even hacking into Israel Aerospace Industries (ISI).
Should an attack on Israeli interests occur, Iran solely relies on its proxies throughout the region for such tasks. This allows Tehran to “technically” keep its hands clean. However, Israel is well-prepared should anything take place, which its military leaders have warned numerous times.
Iran has proxies in (but not limited to) Iraq, Syria, Lebanon (Hezbollah), Gaza (Hamas), and Yemen (Houthi Rebels).
