Israel Preparing For Military Involvement If There’s A Confrontation Between US & Iran

Fact checked

Israel is ‘preparing’ for its military involvement if tensions between the US and Iran escalate further and erupt into a confrontation.

On Tuesday Israel’s Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz warned an international security forum that the situation might be brought out of the “gray zone” and into the “red zone” of “military conflagration” if Iran makes any “mistaken calculations.”

RT reports: Katz said, must be prepared” for such an escalation and continues to “devote itself to building up its military might”in the event that it would have to “respond to escalation scenarios.”

The comments came after a senior Iranian lawmaker warned on Monday that if the US attacks Iran, Tehran will respond and “only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan.”

The two nations frequently exchange threats and Israel has previously threatened to take military action against Iran to prevent it from making nuclear weapons, though Tehran has denied it is trying to produce the bombs.

Israel has been a major supporter of US President Donald Trump’s aggressive “maximum pressure” policy against Iran, including the economic sanctions Washington has used to strangle the country’s economy. Katz predicted that the“economic war” on Iran would be successful despite the lack of enthusiasm for it shown by Europe and other powers — a source of frustration in Washington.

Tensions between the US and Iran has been mounting for months, with the US accusing Tehran of attacking two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman in June. Iran later shot down an American spy drone which it said had entered its airspace, prompting Trump to consider a military strike which he backed away from at the last minute.

Washington accused Tehran of “playing with fire” on Monday after it announced that it had breached uranium enrichment limits under the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal. 


  1. Israel wouldn’t be talking tough without their bodyguard the USA backing them, they know Iran can decimate them. No more wars for Israel. If they have a problem with Iran then they can go fight Iran by themselves.

  2. Israel has the USA leadership by the neck and won’t have to join the fight. They will send our boys in to die, then when the danger is over, they will send their military in to take the credit for a job well done.
