Iran is a global and regional problem and Israel is ready to strike Iran said Benny Gantz the Israeli Defence Minister. The reaction follows the Drone strike on an Israeli tanker on Mercer Street, off the coast of Oman last week. The strike killed two British and Romanian crew members.
Israel has claimed it has hard evidence that Iran is behind the attack and has shared it with its allies. While the United Kingdom and America support Israel’s accusation. Tehran has denied the accusations.
On Wednesday, Hossein Salami the commander-in-chief of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commented that Iran would not tolerate any hostility. He emphasized that Iran would respond decisively to any threat and Iran’s enemies need to understand its defensive and offensive capabilities.
Israel lately has been trying to assert dominance on Iran, preparing for offensive action. And has also opposed the efforts of the western powers to revive the nuclear deal with Iran which would result in sanctions relief for Iran.
