Over the past several days, Israel prevented attacks by Iranian forces and their allies by striking targets in Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, and Iraq.
Now, however, political leaders in the Arab world are accusing Israel of a “declaration of war”, and Hezbollah’s Nasrallah is pledging to strike Israel back extremely hard.
Hezbollah sources said, A reaction “is being arranged in a way which wouldn’t lead to a war” that Hezbollah does not want.
“The direction now is for a calculated strike, but how matters develop, that’s another thing.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier on Tuesday that Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah should “calm down” after Nasrallah said his Iranian-backed movement would respond to the crash of two drones in a Beirut suburb.
Of course if a full-blown war erupts between Israel and one of her neighbors, it is likely to become a multi-front war almost immediately. But at the core, this is a conflict between Israel and Iran.
Yesterday the WSJ ran an article titled ‘The Iran-Israel War Is Here,’
Let us hope and pray for peace.
