If the current trajectory for Iran’s nuclear program continues, there will be no stopping the Islamic Republic’s nuclear breakout without a military strike.
Netanyahu appears ready to order some sort of attack aimed at least setting back Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The challenge of such a strike would be Iran’s retaliation through its proxies that surround Israel. From Syria and Hezbollah in the North to Gaza and Yemen to the South, Israel is nearly surrounded by Iranian proxy groups.
To that end, the IDF is starting a two week drill simulating a multi-front war. The drill is called Firm Hand.
“The forces will practice handling challenges and sudden events on multiple fronts simultaneously,” the IDF said.
In connection to the drill and the Iranian threat. ~Defense Minister Yoav Gallant met with US CENTCOM chief.
