Anticipating Imminent Threat: Joe Biden Foresees Potential Iranian Aggression Towards Israel

In recent developments, US president Joe Biden, has expressed concerns regarding the potential of Iran launching an attack on Israel in the near future as fears grow of Iranian retaliation over an air strike that killed top commanders early this month.

This statement, made by the esteemed statesman, carries significant weight and calls for a careful analysis of situation as Israel has not admitted attacking an Iranian consulate in Syria but is widely believed to have been behind it.

This statement underscores the gravity of the situation and the need for heightened vigilance in the region.

US officials have told CBS News, the BBC’s US partner, that a major attack on Israel could happen imminently.

Israel says it is ready to defend itself. Mr Joe Biden told Iran : “Don’t.”

“We are devoted to the defence of Israel. We will support Israel,” Mr Biden said. “We will help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed.”

Iran backs Hamas, the Palestinian group fighting Israel in Gaza, as well as various proxy groups throughout the region, including some – such as Hezbollah in Lebanon – that frequently carry out strikes against the Israelis.

On Friday, Hezbollah said it had launched “dozens” of rockets from Lebanon towards Israel. An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman said around 40 missiles and two explosive drones had been launched.

No casualties were reported and there were no indications of involvement from other actors.

However BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner says Iran is deliberately keeping the Middle East and Washington guessing.

Ever since the lethal 1 April strike on the consulate building in Damascus, from which Israel believes Iran was directing its covert arms supplies to Iranian proxies in Lebanon and Syria, Iran’s security establishment has been debating its response.

Meanwhile the mounting tensions have led countries including the US, UK, India and Australia to warn against travel to Israel. Germany called on its citizens to leave Iran.

The US state department also barred diplomatic staff and their families in Israel from travelling outside the cities of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beersheba.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has met members of his war cabinet amid the warnings.

Some Israelis said they were not worried about a potential Iranian attack.

“We know that we are surrounded by enemies, in the south, in the north, the east and the west,” Daniel Kosman told AFP news agency at a market in Jerusalem. “We are not afraid, I can promise you. Look around: people are going out.”

However the Israeli government has not issued any new advice to its people on top of existing guidance to stock up on water, food for three days and essential medicine.

Israeli radio, however, reported local authorities had been told to prepare for the possibility of an attack, including by assessing the readiness of public shelters.

In light of Joe Biden’s recent remarks, it is evident that he is keenly aware of the delicate situation between Iran and Israel. While his statement cautions against a potential attack, it also emphasizes the importance of diplomatic efforts to mitigate tensions and maintain stability.
