Israeli media: Iran rallies forces against the US and Israel
Iran is reportedly rallying more fronts against Israel and the United States as threats escalate. This includes pro-Iran groups in Iraq and Syria that are primarily focusing on attacking US bases. Other key players are the Houthis in Yemen and Hezbollah in Lebanon, according to an article by Seth J. Frantzman for the Jerusalem Post.
This information comes on the heels of reports of at least 20 launches crossing from Lebanon into Israeli territory. Hezbollah's second-in-command has threatened to increase cross-border attacks if Israel continues its assault on the Gaza Strip. These threats were echoed in Iran's pro-regime Fars News, which accused the US and Israel of being involved in the "invasion" of Gaza.
A report from Iranian Tasnim provided details on approximately 40 attacks on US forces in Iraq and Syria since October 7. It highlighted the coordination between Iranian proxies, stating that the radius of operations of the Islamic resistance of Iraq extends from the southernmost point of occupied Palestine to the extreme northeast of Syria.
The report disclosed that Iranian proxies in Iraq and Syria are unifying their efforts, with attacks on bases in Iraq and Syria being openly pinpointed. It also warned that no American military bases in Syria and Iraq would be safe from the resistance's suicide drones.
The Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) researchers have also noted the increase in threats from Iran. Recently, the INSS pointed out that Iran is pressuring the US to halt the war in Gaza and has instigated a comprehensive global diplomatic campaign to curb the conflict.
Overall, Iran is utilizing its influence over militias in Iraq and Syria, the Houthis in Yemen, and Hezbollah in Lebanon to amplify regional threats against the US and Israel.
