Tehran has ‘declared war’ and Israel and could now target ‘Iran’s nuclear facilities’

The Middle East is on tender hooks as there are fears a wider war in the region could happen.

Following Tehran’s failed strike on Israel “Iran’s nuclear facilities” could now be attacked, according to an expert.

Max Abrahms, associate professor of political science at Northeastern University, has said that essentially, Iran has “declared war” on Israel.

Professor Abrahms told Northeastern Global News, “Iran has essentially declared war against Israel, and Israel is going to respond in a substantial way.

It’s possible Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will respond by targeting Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

He added, “Israel and Iran have been waging a low-grade war against each other in the shadows.

“Iran has historically used its proxy groups to attack Israel from Yemen, Lebanon and even Palestinian territories with groups like Hamas, which are supported by Iran.”

He warned that that any attack may hold “international implications for the US” as Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Jordan could be impacted.

He said, “There are simultaneous attacks by Iran’s proxies from Yemen, from Lebanon. So yeah, this is a very serious situation.

“We’re in uncharted waters here.”

President Joe Biden has warned Iran that the US will defend Israel against any attacks from Iran of their proxies.

President Biden said, “We also want to address the Iranian threat to launch a significant – they’re threatening to launch a significant attack in Israel.

As I told Prime Minister Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel’s security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad.

“Let me say it again, ironclad. We’re gonna do all we can to protect Israel’s security.”

A White House spokesperson said, “We’ve been clear that we do not want this conflict to escalate or spread further in the region.

“We’ll continue to undertake diplomatic efforts to ensure that remains the case. We also retain a military presence in the region to deter those who seek to take advantage of the conflict.”
