The dates of 7 October 2023 and 13 April 2024 will go down in the history of the Middle East as milestones that defined a new balance of power. The myth of Israel’s military superiority and the invincibility of its army will be gone forever. The Gaza massacre, which caused enormous loss of life and destruction, effectively isolated the Netanyahu government in the international community. Only the US and a few other Western powers provided diplomatic cover for his military provocations…

For the past few days, people and analysts around the world have been worried about the simmering tensions in the Middle East. Iran’s unprecedented attacks on Israel with more than 300 drones and missiles after the latter’s unprovoked attack on its consulate in Damascus, Syria have raised concerns for the peace and stability of not just the Middle East region but for the world. Israel thwarted 99 percent of the Iranian missiles with the assistance of its regional and …

The ongoing military conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip is leading to a new wave of tension in the Middle East. While Israel is supported by a strong defensive wall of Western allies led by the US and Britain, the Palestinians, despite the inability of Muslim nations to present a united front of the Islamic world, nevertheless has the strong support of Iran. Ever since October 7, 2023, when Hamas launched its Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, triggering the current Palestinian-Israeli conflict…

There are few rivalries in our world as powerful and dangerous as that between Israel and Iran. The recent escalation of tensions between these two regional powers – as evidenced by Israel’s attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus and Iran’s retaliatory drone and rocket attacks on Israel – has raised serious global concerns. Many around the world noted Iran’s statement that its military action was in response to Israeli aggression against its diplomatic facilities and that “the matter can be considered settled”. It is believed that if the flames of conflict in Gaza are allowed to continue to rage, the negative effects will spread and…

After two weeks of the attack on its diplomatic representation in Syria by the Zionist State of Israel and in flagrant violation of the Vienna Conventions of 1961 and 1964 on diplomatic and consular relations (killing 13 people in the rank of guards of the Iranian revolution, diplomats, innocent women and children), the Islamic Republic of Iran responds with realism and reciprocity to the war entrepreneurs who, for decades, have been sowing terror and chaos on the Palestinian territory by killing all what moves…

Iran had to retaliate for the Israeli attack on the consulate… and of course, the Israelis and Washington knew they would.   When it comes to measured retaliation, the timing, I can see several reasons: Firstly, of course, Israel’s failure in Gaza. It turned out that the Israeli army is not that strong. If they cannot finish off the so-called Hamas terrorists and genocide, the population in Gaza in six months…

In retaliation to Israel’s April 1st attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Iran directly attacked Israel for the first time in the history of the two countries. Iran used more than 300 missiles to attack Israel, out of which only 15 missiles succeeded in hitting Israeli land near its Nevatim base. The latter killed two generals of the Iranian military in its attack on the Iranian consulate. Public pressure inside Iran mounted to an unprecedented level, demanding action against Israel…

Since October 7, 2023 it would appear a spontaneous chain of events is leading the Middle East deeper and deeper into conflict. From Israel’s ongoing military operations in Gaza to its strikes on Hezbollah in southern Lebanon and repeated strikes across Syria (including the recent strike on Iran’s embassy in Damascus)…

Israel’s brutal attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus represents a potentially dangerous escalation that goes far beyond the ongoing conflict in Gaza. The new act of terrorism by the Israelis and Netanyahu personally is a significant development in the broader dynamics of the Middle East that could plunge the entire region into a new war, with enormous casualties on all sides, through Israel’s fault…

Israel is continuing its military operations in the Gaza Strip, where the focus of a devastating war is shifting to the southern town of Rafah, threatening a massive catastrophe for the more than one million Palestinian refugees who have flocked to the borders with Egypt in the hope of humanitarian aid and rescue. Tel Aviv, represented by Prime Minister Netanyahu and the heads of the security services, has repeatedly declared the readiness of the defence forces to launch an operation. Each time, however, Israel has paused and limited itself to targeted military action in this direction.

The author has repeatedly argued that the US and the UK have been fighting in Gaza, and the Middle East using Israel, a reality that was revealed in the UNSC meeting of April 2nd convened to discuss Israeli bombing of the Iranian embassy in Damascus. The US, UK, and France blamed…

Israel violated numerous international laws and norms on 1st April 5, 2024, through its multiple war crimes. It attacked Iran’s diplomatic building in Syria, targeted staff of a US NGO, the World Central Kitchen (WCK), working in Gaza, and destroyed Al-Shifa hospital, all on the same day. The Israeli Defense Forces have been incessantly committing war crimes in Gaza since the commencement of the Israel-Hamas War. The innocent civilian population has witnessed indiscriminate bombing…
