Israel’s Military Intelligence director said that Iran is considering an attack on the World Cup in Qatar
Iran is reportedly contemplating such an attack as it grows desperate in the face of a “civilian rebellion” at home.
“Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva said the anti-regime protests, which were sparked after Mahsa Amini died in police custody after being arrested by the morality police for not wearing her hijab properly, are ‘extremely exceptional,'” reported Breitbart.
“The death toll, the attacks on national symbols — this is very troubling for the regime, especially combined with sanctions, the existing international pressure, and the difficult economic situation,” Haliva said at an Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv.
“Over 400 people have died over the course of the protests and more than 15,000 arrested,” added Breitbart.
“There is a real concern within the regime that it endangers the regime. At this stage, I do not see a risk to the regime…. but as the pressure on Iran increases, including internal pressure, the Iranian response is much more aggressive, so we should expect much more aggressive responses in the region and in the world,” Haliva said.
“If Israel felt the need to attack Tehran’s nuclear facilities, ‘I would be happy if the US was by our side,’ Haliva was quoted as saying in the report,” reported Breitbart.
“He went on to claim that Israel’s new Arab allies. which signed normalization agreements under the Trump-led Abraham Accords, may not support a military strike,” Breitbart said.
“The Abraham Accords intensified [Iran’s] sense of [regional] suffocation. This is a great thing and I hope they would be expanded. But in the end, there is an understanding that we are the regional power, and it is not worth depending on these countries to be by our side on the day of action against the Iranians, because I estimate this will not happen,” Haliva said.
