We see the current Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu win a victory in the upcoming Israeli elections and retaining his position as PM. We continue to see clouds and storms swirling around him and advise caution in the near future.
Current attempts by allies to avert a land invasion will fail.
Goal is to severely damage Hamas and their allies attempts to launch long-range rockets into Israeli territory.
Threatens retaliatory strike on Israel if Syria attacked by allies.
We say this to Iran: it is unwise to wag your finger in the face of a scorpion.
We believe an attack will come in the form of a military strike with possible ground troops included. The attack will target the complex at Fordow and other nuclear sites as well as potential retaliatory strikes from within Iran. Iran will counter with a massive rocket attack on Israel from Lebanon and possibly involving Syria (although we see this as increasingly unlikely).
Why is Israel suddenly moving very aggressively against Hamas in Gaza? They are targeting rocket launchers, leaders and ammo dumps. Maybe they are looking to knock out a Hamas retaliatory capability before the strike in Iran? Then they only have to deal with one front instead of two. For those of you who have contacted me in the past, I told many of you it would begin with an attack on Israel. Let they with whom I have shared some of this knowledge understand.
A senior Iranian commander has told Iranian state run television that a strike by Israel on Iran could trigger World War III. Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh who is responsible for the Iranian Republican Guard’s aerospace division told state-run television that an Israeli attack would provide Iran with an excuse to destroy Israel and establish a Palestinian homeland. As with previous commentary from Iranian military personnel, he indicated that they would also attack U.S. bases in the region should Israel attack them first. Indicating that Iran or Israel and the U.S. would not be fighting a war alone with Iran, he indicated that other interested countries would take sides, leading to a wider conflict. He also boasted that Iran would break the back of Israel in a military exchange in a day. “If the Zionists really do strike Iran, it would provide a historic opportunity for the Islamic Revolution to wipe them off the face of the earth.” Iran would then “reclaim the lands occupied by Israel for the Palestinians.””Our enemy will begin the war, but we will be the ones to end it,” he stated.
In a further example of Iran‘s defiance to imposed sanctions, Reuters is reporting today that Iran has added more enrichment centrifuges to its underground Fordo complex. This news, which is probably no surprise to Israel‘s intelligence resources, further increases the chances that Israel will not wait long before moving forward to disable Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Update: Iran has added more then 1,000 new centrifuges. Previous attempts to slow down Iran’s nuclear program, such as cybertattacks (code named Olympic Games) has slowed, but not stopped its progress. All diplomatic negotiations have come to a halt.
