IRAN ON EDGE: Israel Prepared to ATTACK Tehran if Provoked
Israeli defense officials confirmed Monday that their armed forces are prepared to launch an attack against the Iranian capital should they be threatened from Syria or other neighboring countries.
According to the Washington Times, authorities in Jerusalem informed both US and Russian officials that -should a military strike against Israel originate in Syria- they have “plans” to launch major offensives against Tehran.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to outline a major defense initiative Monday, following weeks of escalations between the Jewish State and the Islamic Republic over Syria and other regional conflicts.
Earlier this year, Israel launched a major strike against Iranian forces operating inside the civil war-torn nation after anti-air defenses destroyed an Israeli fighter jet.
Tehran vowed a firm response should Israel continue to strike Iranian-backed fighters in the region.
IRAN ON EDGE: Macron, Trump Demand NEW DEAL on Iran’s Nukes
French President Emmanuel Macron and President Donald Trump called for a “new deal” on Iran’s nuclear weapons program Tuesday; sending a clear message to Tehran that France and the United States are serious in forging a new agreement with the Islamic Republic.
The two leaders spoke with reporters following a joint press conference at the White House, with Macron confirming that his government is willing to renegotiate the nuclear agreement alongside the Trump administration.
“I can say that we have had very frank discussions on that, just the two of us,” said Macron. “We, therefore, wish from now on to work on a new deal with Iran.”
“I think we will have a great shot at doing a much bigger, maybe, deal,” said Trump.
The remarks come just one day after Iran’s foreign minister claimed there was no “Plan B” should the United States decide to withdraw from the agreement.
