Se intensifica el riesgo de una guerra Irán-Israel

By Duncan Mil

April 11, 2024 - IIsrael ha amenazado con atacar directamente a Irán si la RepúblicaIslámica ataca a Israel luego de los asesinatos de siete miembros de la Guardia Revolucionaria en una explosión en el consulado iraní en Siria

President Joe Biden has promised Israel “ironclad” U.S. support amid fears that Tehran could launch reprisals for an attack that killed Mohammad Reza Zahedi -- Iran’s top Quds Force general -- and other senior Iranians.

Biden warned that Iran is threatening to launch a “significant attack” after Israel struck the Iranian consulate in Syria on April 1.

A squadron of Israeli fighter jets has carried out joint exercises with Cyprus to simulate an attack on Iran, local media reported on Thursday.

“When they attacked our consulate area, it was like they attacked our territory,” Iran’ Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a televised speech.

“The evil regime must be punished, and it will be punished.”

It is unclear what form any reprisal attack would take.

For Iran to strike Israel directly would risk an even more significant escalation in the conflict, and analysts have said Iran does not have the military capability for a confrontation with Israel.

A possible alternative is an attack via an Iranian proxy like Hezbollah, which has traded fire with Israel across the border from Lebanon almost daily since October 8.
