As the war continues, Iran appears to be considering joining the melee. Should Hezbollah join the fight, the United States will certainly get involved quickly escalating this war into a global catastrophe.
On Monday, Iran warned of a possible “pre-emptive action” against Israel in the coming hours as Israel readies for a ground offensive on the Gaza Strip. This could be indicating the real possibility of Hezbollah joining the war. In a live broadcast on state propaganda TV, Iran’s foreign minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said, “The possibility of pre-emptive action by the resistance axis is expected in the coming hours.”
Amir-Abdollahian said Monday that “the resistance leaders” will not allow Israel “to do whatever it wants in Gaza,” according to a report by Mint. “If we don’t defend Gaza today, tomorrow we have to defend against these (phosphorus) bombs in the children’s hospital of our own country,” he added as quoted by Associated Free Press.
At least 2,778 have been killed and 9,700 wounded in Gaza, according to the Health Ministry there. More than 1,400 Israelis have been killed, the vast majority of civilians massacred in Hamas’ October 7th assault.
After an attack on a hospital in Gaza, the tensions have escalated. Iran joining the war in any capacity will be a chaotic mess, as the ruling classes of other warring factions will join in pushing this into world war territory.
An Israeli official has said that should Hezbollah join the war, the U.S. will follow. Tzachi Hanegbi, the head of the National Security Council of Israel, made comments during a televised briefing, pointing to Joe Biden’s public warning to Hezbollah and Iran to keep out of the fighting and the deployment of U.S. Navy carrier strike groups to the Eastern Mediterranean, according to a report by Fox News.
“He is making clear to our enemies that if they even imagine taking part in the offensive against the citizens of Israel, there will be American involvement here,” Hanegbi said of Biden’s support. “Israel will not be alone. … A U.S. force is here and it is ready,” he added, without elaborating, according to Reuters.
