Spannungen steigen zwischen Iran und Israel

January 18, 2021 - Israel erhöht den Druck auf den Iran in den letzten Tagen der Administration von US Präsident Donald Trump. Damit steigt das Risiko eines iranischen Gegenschlags – vor allem in Konfliktgebieten wie Syrien, Irak und möglicherweise dem Jemen.

Thanks to its close relationship with Trump, Israel currently has political backing from the United States to carry out covert and military action against Iran and its proxies. But it is not yet clear if it will receive the same level of support from the incoming administration of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden, Stratfor said.

Israel’s military and political leaders are also attempting to signal that Israel is prepared to escalate amid uncertainty about the incoming Biden administration’s commitment to pressuring Iran, especially in the face of Tehran’s advancing nuclear programme.
