    Israel Bracing for Unprecedented Direct Iran Attack in Days

    Israel is bracing for a direct and unprecedented attack by Iran on government targets as soon as Saturday, according to people familiar with western intelligence assessments, a move that has the potential to trigger an all-out regional war.


    An assault from Iranian soil has emerged as one of the main scenarios expected by the Jewish state and its allies, said the people, who asked not to be identified as they aren’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly. A bombardment with drones and precision missiles could come within the next 48 hours, they said.


    “I don’t want to get into secure information but my expectation is sooner rather than later,” President Joe Biden said Friday in response to a question about whether an Iranian strike was imminent. Asked what message he’d give to Iran, Biden responded, “Don’t.”


    “We are devoted to the defense of Israel,” Biden said. “We will support Israel, we will defend help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed.”


    Oil jumped to the highest level since October on the news, rallying as much as 2.6% to top $92 a barrel. Futures have surged 19% this year with the war adding risk premium to the market.


    The US is preparing defenses and moved additional military assets to the region, while intensifying diplomatic efforts to rein in hostilities, the people said. Among the US forces in the Middle East are two Navy destroyers that moved to the Eastern Mediterranean Sea last week, according to a Navy official who asked not to be identified discussing military movements. One is the USS Carney, which was recently in the Red Sea performing air defense against Houthi drones and anti-ship missiles.


    US officials including Jake Sullivan and Brett McGurk have been working to send messages to Iran, including through an established Swiss channel, one of the people said, while talking to Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other governments.


    The intelligence assessment is that the attack still hasn’t been approved by Tehran’s highest-ranking officials, according to the people. An Iranian missile and drone barrage would represent a retaliation for a deadly strike on its diplomatic compound in Syria last week, which the Islamic Republic blames on Israel. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has repeatedly said Israel will be “punished” for the assault, though stopped short of saying what form such a counter move would take.


    Late Friday, Israel reported 40 rocket launches from Lebanese territory and said some were intercepted. Israeli forces also intercepted two of Hezbollah’s explosive drones earlier in the day, the Israel Defense Forces said in a post on X.


    One of the people said it’s possible that the increasingly inflammatory rhetoric between Israel, Iran, and the US could be grandstanding, but said the working assumption for Israel and allies is that an attack is imminent. Diplomatic back-channels are in overdrive, the people said.

    Any Iranian attack on Israel would likely be a combination of missiles and drones, based on current capabilities outlined in a new Defense Intelligence Agency Worldwide Threat assessment released late Thursday.


    The regime “has a substantial inventory of ballistic and cruise missiles capable of striking targets as far as 2,000 kilometers from its borders,” the agency said.


    Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday the US and allies were expecting a major escalation of hostilities, with targeted attacks on Israeli government and military sites. The Jewish State hasn’t claimed or denied responsibility for the Damascus attack, in keeping with a decades-long policy of ambiguity on operations in Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere.


    A direct Israel-Iran conflict would significantly rachet up hostilities in the Middle East, where tensions have been rising since Israel began its war against Hamas in Gaza in October, after the Iran-backed militant group invaded the country and killed about 1,200 people. Hamas is designated a terrorist organization by the US and European Union.


    Other members of the Islamic Republic’s so-called Axis of Resistance, chiefly Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Yemen-based Houthis, have stepped up their aggression in recent months.

    The escalating hostilities have drawn direct intervention from senior diplomats. UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron warned Iran Thursday that an attack would escalate and drag in a wider array of actors.


    Western officials said intelligence showed Iran is preparing an attack on Israel any day after Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday celebrated on April 10, adding the next 48 hours were critical to see if the message to diffuse tensions had successfully reached Tehran.

    I think the biiger picture the persians have taken sides like the yank sin the Semite civil war between belivers in assorted messages to assorted bearded men long ago when psychosis and child abuse were not treated as we might today.

    I fear kiss and make up far away anf a bigger tiff moot.

    Iran maybe the first since Soddom Insane to attack a minor nuclear power backed by a nation that actually used them.

    CIA know that China and Russia will bristle but won't risk oblivion to defend the Ayatollahs esp when we recall Putin and the Chechens nd Xi and the Uighurs.

    Another factor is the many new Israelis with Russian roots.

    I think theyll get Houthis or Hezzbollah to do a hit to assauge their losses in Syria.

    Of couse I may be wrong and a bigger conflict with attack on Iran regime change might distract USA from Biden's other issues and keep Benji outta jail a bit longer. If IDF enter Rafah exodus in reverse may occur into Egypt si Israel ca redevelop Gaza as club med and associated oil offshore

    BRICS countries urge halting Zionist atrocities in Gaza - SATANIC Israel got their wish - All BRIC nation's as One with only one goal to De-Fang IDF&US-MIL in Region


    "The BRICS group, comprised of Brazil, Russia, India, Iran, China, and South Africa, established in 2009 - They have now replaced the UN who refuse to stop Israeli Genocide in Palestine;

    APR 13

    The only way to stop the GAZA genocide is to de-fang Israel, USA, & UK, GERMANY&FRANCE
    Alone IRAN cannot de-fang the Israeli satanic IDF, and its USA pit-bulls

    But together they can wipe out the IDF & US-MIL bases in the region

    The meeting of representatives from BRICS member countries convened on Thursday evening in Moscow. The session, aside from discussing the collaborative parliamentary agenda involving the ten member nations, also squarely addressed the urgent need to confront the actions of the Zionist regime.

    The agenda of the BRICS Parliamentary Forum and proposals for inter-parliamentary collaboration among member countries took center stage during this intensive two-day session.

    Ebrahim Rezaei, head of the Iran-Russia parliamentary friendship group and a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament, represented Iran in this forum.

    Rezaei articulated the Iranian delegation's stance, contextualizing Iran's BRICS membership within the broader strategic objectives of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

    He cited the recent events in Gaza to vehemently denounce the actions of the Zionist regime, characterizing them as acts of state terrorism and genocide and advocating for their immediate cessation.

    Representatives of BRICS countries have called for putting an end to the ongoing crimes committed by the Zionist regime in the Gaza Strip.

    The meeting of representatives from BRICS member countries convened on Thursday evening in Moscow. The session, aside from discussing the collaborative parliamentary agenda involving the ten member nations, also squarely addressed the urgent need to confront the actions of the Zionist regime.

    The agenda of the BRICS Parliamentary Forum and proposals for inter-parliamentary collaboration among member countries took center stage during this intensive two-day session.

    Ebrahim Rezaei, head of the Iran-Russia parliamentary friendship group and a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Iranian Parliament, represented Iran in this forum.

    Rezaei articulated the Iranian delegation's stance, contextualizing Iran's BRICS membership within the broader strategic objectives of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

    He cited the recent events in Gaza to vehemently denounce the actions of the Zionist regime, characterizing them as acts of state terrorism and genocide and advocating for their immediate cessation.

    Emphasizing one of the primary agendas of the Iranian parliamentary delegation, Rezaei reiterated the commitment to defending Palestine's rights and condemning the atrocities committed by the Zionist regime, which he linked to the U.S. support of the regime.

    Furthermore, the Iranian lawmaker outlined concerted efforts to harness the political and diplomatic prowess of BRICS in halting the ongoing war and genocide in Gaza.

    He urged leveraging all available political and economic instruments to dismantle the war machinery of the Zionist regime.

    Touching upon the formation of an anti-Western coalition, Rezaei underscored the positive impacts and opportunities arising from BRICS membership.

    Other key highlights of the session included engagements between representatives from BRICS member countries and the first working group meeting aimed at exploring avenues for parliamentary cooperation. Notable discussions took place with the Deputy Head of the Federation Council and the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

    The BRICS group, comprised of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa, established in 2009, has emerged as a significant force shaping global economic discussions.

    Iran, alongside Argentina, Egypt, Ethiopia, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia, received an invitation to join this influential bloc effective January 1, 2024, signaling a significant transformation in the geopolitical arena.

    Rezaei concluded by highlighting the significance of BRICS membership in rebuffing Western attempts to isolate Iran, thereby bolstering Iran's resistance against Western hegemony and reshaping the global power dynamics to foster a more balanced international order, with power shifting from the West to the East.

    Iran seizes Israeli-linked container ship

    The seizure came after Tehran promised to deal Israel a “slap in the face”

    "The MSC Aries seen near Rilland, The Netherlands,

    June 10, 2023 Marinetraffic.com / Dirk Notenboom

    Iranian commandos have stormed an Israeli-operated container ship in the Persian Gulf and taken control of the vessel. Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz condemned the “pirate operation” and called on the West to impose sanctions on Tehran.

    The MSC Aries was boarded by Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy troops as it transited the Strait of Hormuz around noon on Saturday. Once under the IRGC’s control, it was taken to Iranian territorial waters, Iranian state media reported.

    Video footage shared online showed IRGC commandos rappelling onto the deck of the ship from a helicopter.

    The Portuguese-flagged MSC Aries is operated by Zodiac Maritime, a shipping firm owned by Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer. At the time of the seizure, it was sailing past the Emirati port of Fujairah with its transponder switched off, the Associated Press reported. With Iran controlling the Strait of Hormuz and Yemen’s Houthi rebels attacking Israeli shipping interests in the Red Sea, it is standard practice for Israeli-linked vessels to disable their tracking data when sailing in the region.

    Since 2019, Iran has periodically seized Israeli and Western vessels in the Strait of Hormuz during times of increased tension. Tehran typically offers legal justification for these seizures, but gave no such explanation on Saturday.

    However, Saturday’s seizure came two weeks after an alleged Israeli airstrike on an Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus. The strike killed seven officers of the IRGC’s Quds Force, including two generals.

    Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed to deal Israel a “slap in the face” in response, and American officials warned on Friday that Tehran could be gearing up for a massive drone and missile strike on Israeli soil over the weekend. It is unclear whether Iran plans further attacks after seizing the MSC Aries.

    Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz condemned the seizure, accusing Khamenei’s “criminal regime” of “conducting a pirate operation in violation of international law.”

    “I call on the European Union and the free world to immediately declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guards corps as a terrorist organization and to sanction Iran now,” he wrote on X."

    Doubt more sanctions will deter Iran anymore than the dozens of sanctions currently in place.

    Doesn't the i in BRICS stand for India? Someone needs to tell the Indian Navy to stop defending Indian sailors against Houthi attacks and get back to solidarity with the rest of Brics!

    The smart thing would be for the Zionists to take this on the chin and do nothing. Iran statement was that they consider the matter closed following their retaliatory strike.

    The question is are the Israelis smart?

    Netanyahu realised the ‘War’ in Gaza was not going well, world opinion had turned against Israel, and he is clinging to power by trying to keep a fragile coalition together.


    What was his solution, bombing and killing 13 Iranians (a total of 18 recently) at a diplomatic mission in a sovereign nation, and he didn’t tell the USA beforehand! The Iran attack on Israel is a retaliatory attack. This is the first time Iran has directly attacked Israel, yet Israel has been attacking Iran directly for years.


    Basically Netanyahu has put Biden on the spot and manipulated the narrative back in Israel’s favour. If he had told USA they would have said don’t do it, they don’t want further escalation.


    The geopolitical dynamic, dragging Iran in directly, provides more support than a $36 billion a year military killing starving children.
    Shalom

    One report on the attack by Iran on Israel.



    Will Israel be shown as dismissing western sources advice, as reported in the video, by attacking Iran once again?
